John Calipari is expanding his 2019 recruiting efforts once again, as he’s now showing interest in four-star shooting guard Lester Quinones, according to 247 Sports’ Andrew Slater.

Quinones is the No. 78 player and the No. 10 shooting guard in the 2019 class on the 247 Sports Composite. The Brentwood, New York, native currently has 16 offers. That includes offers from Florida and Western Kentucky. He doesn’t currently have any predictions logged in his crystal ball.

The interest from Kentucky is new. We’ll see how much Calipari ramps up his interest in Quinones.

Quinones would have good height for a college two guard, as he’s 6-5. He’s a very talented scorer, as he can shoot from 3-point range, pull up from mid range, and slash inside to finish at the basket. He’s also got the athleticism to run the break and finish in transition.

You can check out his highlight reel below.
