Just hours after returning home from Kentucky’s victory over Mississippi on Tuesday night, was back on the road to do some recruiting.  The assistant coach went to Nashville on Wednesday to see Jalen Lindsey, a 6-foot-6 small forward who has become one of the most recruited prospects in the class of 2014.

Christ Presbyterian Academy Coach Drew Maddux said has been in frequent contact since last season, but this was the first time anyone from the staff had traveled to the school’s campus.

Though has yet to offer Lindsey a scholarship, Maddux said his star player will keep the Cats on his list.
