RJ Hampton, a five-star recruiting prospect who has already cut his landing spots list to a final four, will be visited by Kentucky Wildcats coach John Calipari. Given the three other schools remaining, and Calipari himself being the man to check on the youngster, it’s clear the Wildcats are looking to make it known they want his services.
This news was first relayed on Twitter by Stockrisers reporter Jake Weingarten, who actually also mentioned that Kentucky would be sending an assistant to check in on five-star prospect Sharife Cooper.
The four schools remaining to land his services are the Duke Blue Devils, Kentucky Wildcats, Memphis Tigers and Kansas Jayhakws. Basically, the bluest of blue blood schools, as well as a Memphis program spearheaded by recruiting guru Penny Hardaway.
Not only do all reputable recruiting service websites have him pegged as a five-star recruit, but all seem to agree RJ Hampton is one of the five best players in the entire 2020 recruiting class. He is, apparently, very good at basketball.
Nevertheless, with the programs left vying for his services, it’ll be fun to follow John Calipari as he attempts to land the young man.
