John Calipari has been a busy man on the trail recently, but it looks like he’ll be sidelined for the upcoming weekend of recruiting.

On Wednesday, Calipari tweeted out that he just underwent a minor surgery that will probably keep him away from the various AAU events this week. He also said he’s not yet looked at what the NCAA commission’s recommendation on fixing the sport.

“I really haven’t had time to look at the commission’s recommendations yet,” said Calipari. “I had a minor surgery yesterday that’s going to keep me in the hospital for a couple days. I’m probably going to miss recruiting this weekend, but all is good!”

Interestingly, Vernon Carey recently said Calipari missed an in-home visit with him due to what he thought was a surgical procedure.

You know it will be eating at Calipari if he’s sidelined for any part of the recruiting season, especially with how hot UK has been recently. They’ve secured commitments from E.J. Montgomery and Ashton Hagans already, and Tyrese Maxey looks like he’s close to popping.
