John Calipari is extra swaggy after landing EJ Montgomery and Ashton Hagans; hinting at another addition?

Cal is swaggy and letting the world know it. Did he also hint at another addition coming?

NBA: NBA Draft Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

John Calipari is feeling it right now, and for good reason.

On Monday, Calipari landed a commitment from E.J. Montgomery, the No. 6 overall player in 2018 via 247 Sports.

Then on Tuesday, Calipari scored a pledge from Ashton Hagans, the No. 6 recruit in 2019, though it’s very likely he reclassifies and joins the 2018 class.

That has Calipari an an extra swaggy mood, and it sounds like he’s not done adding to his roster for next season.

This comes on the same day there’s been scuttlebiutt that UK could land another 2019 recruit that reclassifies, as well as a potential graduate transfer.

That tweet seems to indicate another addition is coming, though it may come with another subtraction as well.

The buzz for Wenyen Gabriel leaving for the NBA Draft is growing, and Hamidou Diallo is almost certainly leaving. Then there’s a chance PJ Washington or Jarred Vanderbilt could also leave for the NBA Draft.

So, UK could end up losing 2-3 more players, so it makes sense that they could be planning to add 1-2 more players for next season. Who those could be is anyone’s guess right now.

Judging by Cal’s tweet along with all of the buzz surrounding another potential addition, we should probably expect at least one more new player to join the roster for next season.

Oh, and Dillon Pulliam just announced he’s transferring, so maybe UK will add another walk-on this offseason.

With that said, who do you think could be added to the roster for next season?
