Calipari Talks Recruiting, NBA Age Limit; Complaint Against Pitino Won't be Prosecuted
Kentucky coach John Calipari says in an interview with WJBF-TV that the July recruiting period should be shut down and that the NBA age limit is a farce. Hear, hear.
**Also, Jeff Goodman of FoxSports.com reports that Duke recruit Andre Dawkins is expected to be cleared to enroll and become eligible this year. Dawkins was originally a member of the Class of 2010. Duke has two guards returning from last year —Jon Scheyer and Nolan Smith — and no other guards incoming. The Devils lost combo guard Elliot Williams when he transferred to Memphis.
**The sexual offense complaint filed against Louisville coach Rick Pitinowon’t be prosecuted. Still, this whole story is pretty sordid and can’t be good for Louisville’s image.
