John Calipari’s Kentucky teams are known for their star freshmen.
Constant turnover as players leave for the NBA draft has forced a new batch of McDonald’s All-Americans to take starring roles in each season of Calipari’s Kentucky tenure, but the coach raised the bar for his new freshmen just minutes after his 2015-16 season ended.
“We got a heck of a group coming in, maybe the best ever that I’ve had,” Calipari said in a news conference after an NCAA tournament second-round loss to Indiana. “The big picture for us is we’re fine.”
Calling any recruiting class maybe the best he’s had is a head-turning comment for Calipari.
