John Calipari is out here making moves! Boss moves!

The realm of college basketball was put into a state of chaos earlier in April when legendary Kentucky head coach John Calipari left the Wildcats program to take over the skipper’s role at Arkansas. The last head coach, Eric Musselman, went out west to USC. (RELATED: Roddy Gayle Jr. Transfers To Michigan In Ultimate Backstab To Ohio State)

Like normal, Calipari brought in a powerhouse recruiting class for Kentucky prior to leaving the school. But now that he’s at Arkansas, he’s gonna need talent, right? And with Arkansas being in the SEC and conference rivals, he’s gonna need to compete with the Wildcats for talent … right?

And that he is — in flying colors — as Calipari has flipped five-star recruit Karter Knox from Kentucky to Arkansas. Calipari recruited him to the Wildcats before his exit, and now, the two will be joining each other in Fayetteville.

Knox’s power tool is scoring, and he’s an absolute giant who clocks in at 6-foot-5 and 225 pounds.

Why do I have a strong feeling that Kentucky is going to regret tremendously letting Calipari walk?

Oh, that’s right … BECAUSE THE MAN IS ALREADY OUT HERE STEALING THEIR FIVE-STAR RECRUITS! … clearly going for the last laugh. Get ready, UK.
