After the long, exhausting saga that was the Kerry Blackshear Jr. transfer, it is nice to have relaxed transfer process like that of Brad Calipari. What began as a testing of the waters, now looks like a done deal. Brad Swag will be leaving Lexington.
As announced via his Twitter, Calipari is down to two schools: Detroit and Hampton.
Brad Calipari has taken visits to Hartford, Detroit and Bryant so far. After redshirting for last season, Calipari still has two years of eligibility and will be allowed to play immediately.
Everyone has their opinion on Brad. Some say he isn’t good enough to play D-1 and some go even further to say that he never belonged in Kentucky Blue to begin with. Say what you will, but he is definitely better than Saul Smith, Tubby’s son. Also, Brad has been playing the last 3 years against the top talent in the country in practice. Many of the players he guarded are now in the NBA. That kind of competition has to translate to some kind of improvement and playing time for a mid major school.
Regardless, he will easily be the best dressed and get the most attention on and off the court.
