John Calipari is in the mix for another top point guard in the 2018 class.
Quentin Grimes, a 6-4 point guard from Texas, has cut his list to 4 and Kentucky has made the cut.
Zagsblog.com spoke to Grimes about his top 4 and here is what he said about Kentucky:
“Coach Cal’s message is he gets players to the league. I’m a definitely a player that can can done with that. Come in there and play alongside other five-star players, get better every day, development on and off the court. Can’t help but get better playing with other great players, all playing alongside each other and pushing each other. So I could go in there, be the primary ball-handler, overall have a good year with them and try to get them a national championship.”
Kentucky is also involved for 2018 point guard Immanuel Quickley who takes his official this weekend, but that’s not an issue for Grimes.
“Yeah, he talked about the transition to the NBA and if gets three guards he’ll take them all and he just has to make them work. So if he gets three guards, he’ll play three guards. The best players will play for sure.”
