Locked-Out Ex-Wildcats Wanted Back on UK Campus

University of Kentucky head basketball coach John Calipari is a great recruiter. That is no secret. University of Kentucky head basketball coach John Caliapari has a great big heart. That, too, is no secret. But now, Coach Cal has combined those two highly valued assets and has essentially re-invented the whole recruiting process.
