Well BBN, it looks like our worst fears are being realized. Our sweet prince, Brad Calipari, is really serious about transferring. Even though the writing has been on the wall for a while and he actually entered the transfer portal weeks ago, some still believed that he would stay. But Brad Swag has just scheduled his first official visit with another school. And that lucky school is THE University of Hartford.
Going to Connecticut to play in the American East Conference will be a major change of pace from playing at Kentucky. Many even speculated that Brad Calipari would stay close to the bluegrass. Names like EKU, NKU, Georgetown College and even D-2 powerhouse Bellarmine have been thrown out. And while those are all still possibilities, Hartford may be a great fit for him.
After all, the Hawks are losing three of their top guards making Brad a contender for substantial playing time and possibly even starting. And before anyone tries to say that Brad isn’t a D-1 caliber player, just remember that we haven’t seen him play in over a year. He has had the last 3 seasons to practice against some of the best players in the country and rising stars in the NBA that definitely did not make him worse at basketball.
Now, he gets to take the new skills from an SEC school to a mid major. And if there is one thing mid-majors are known for, it is white shooters. Brad Calipari will be just fine at Hartford.
