The grind never stops with John Calipari and company as they were just in to visit one of the best recruits in the 2021 class.

Patrick Baldwin Jr. is a 6-8, 190 pound recruit that has all the makings of a potential superstar. 247 Sports composite currently has him ranked at #2 overall in the country.

Watching some highlights of Baldwin really puts into perspective what he could be in the future. He is extremely lengthy right now and ]can hurt you in a multitude of ways on both sides of the ball.

Baldwin is also widely known for his combination of athleticism and high basketball IQ. He’s the son of a coach, which means that basketball is in his blood.

Right now, every blue blood and then some are after him. He holds offers from all of them; Kentucky, Duke, North Carolina, and Kansas.

Interesting to point out, Florida and Marquette are both listed as ‘warm’ on 247 Sport’s site. As of right now, the crystal ball has Duke landing him with a 100% chance.

His recruitment is far from over, as I’m sure all of these schools are going to give him their best pitch. More than likely, Baldwin won’t decide until well into next year, but when you have an opportunity to land someone like this, you have to go all in.
