Arthur Kaluma is now off the board to Kansas State.

Good morning BBN!

It has been a quiet summer and off-season so far for the Kentucky Wildcats men’s basketball team, but it seems likely that will change as we head into this second full week of June.

With the freshman now on campus, John Calipari and his staff are looking to add three more players to the 2023 class, which include Jordan Burks, Joey Hart, and Somto Cyril.

All three recruits have visited over the last few days, and it appears that the Cats will ultimately land all three in the coming days. At least one commitment will happen Monday, as Burks is expected to announce his decision. Hopefully, it will be Kentucky.

The biggest news and player to watch, however, is Arthur Kaluma.

The Creighton transfer has been tied to UK since he pulled his name out of the NBA Draft on May 31st, but they seemed to be a long shot to land the talented forward. That might not be the case any longer, as Kaluma is expected on campus later this week. He’s also expected to visit Alabama.

It has been a quiet offseason, but Coach Calipari is making some noise here late. Let’s see if he can round out the next week with some new faces for the program.
