Kentucky will be hosting one of the top big man prospects in the country this week.

Adem Bona, the nation’s second-ranked center, is planning a visit to Kentucky on Friday and talked to Adam Zagoria about the recruitment process and Kentucky.

Bona talked about what it was like to get the offer from Kentucky.

“One of the biggest goals is getting offered by Coach [John] Calipari. When you get an offer from Kentucky, that’s kind of huge. It was big for me.”

And Bona said he models his game after another former Wildcat.

“I’m trying to model my game after Bam because he’s one of my favorites because he’s one of the most diverse players in the league,” Bona said. “They said I am growing like Bam coming out of high school and Bam developed a lot going to Kentucky. That’s one of the major reasons that I’m considering Kentucky.”

We know Bona is high on the Cats and they obviously place a priority on him by extending an offer. It’ll be interesting to see how his upcoming visit plays out.
