  • Calipari Visits Kuran Iverson

    Share Zagsblog Share Zagsblog
    John Calipari may be loaded for the present, but he’s still looking ahead to the future.

    The Kentucky coach spent part of Monday visiting Kuran Iverson, a 6-foot-9, 210-pound 2013 small forward out of West Hartford (Conn.) Northwest Catholic.

    “He just said, ‘What’s up?’ and asked me how’s it going,” Iverson, the cousin of former Georgetown and NBA star Allen Iverson, told

    Andre Harrington, Iverson’s AAU coach, added that Calipari “basically wanted to stop by and say hi while he was out visiting his daughter at UMass.

    “He was just telling Kuran by the time he graduates the other [Kentucky] guys will be leaving,” Harrington added.

    Iverson said he cut Syracuse from his list after the Orange landed 2012 small forward Jerami Grant from DeMatha Catholic. (Ironically, DeMatha will play at Northwest Catholic this year.)

    He said his list now consists of UConn, Kentucky , Louiville, Villanova and Texas.
