Kentucky coach John Calipari will have surgery on his hip Friday and that will keep him off the recruiting trail — and from meeting with current players — for a few weeks during his recovery.
But Calipari took to Twitter (@UKCoachCalipari) to share a few things about next year’s team and what he did this week with the returning players. Here’s the series of tweets he posted:
— Had a team meeting on Monday. Had to wait to do it until we knew what the team was. The meeting was minus our incoming freshmen obviously.
— The meeting was about our vision for this group and each player talked about what they would work on this summer to elevate their game.
— Today I met with Marcus, Dom, Derek and EJ, who I hadn’t met with individually yet. All I can tell you is we have the best young men.
— They aren’t afraid to self-evaluate and be honest with themselves, yet they all have dreams, hopes and desires that I want to help them with
— I am totally dedicated to each of these young men.
— I believe in them and I’m committed to doing the best for them as individuals as we build this team into something we can all be proud of.
