The Kentucky Wildcat’s season came to an end recently when they were defeated in the Elite 8 by the North Carolina Tar Heels. John Calipari, the team’s head coach, has been on somewhat of a recruiting spree ever since. He has apparently been looking for new signees from the 2017 and 2018 classes. In fact, he visited 11 of them over the past three weeks. These 2017 signees will apparently be announced by the time they are finished with their class. Despite having had rather busy past three weeks, John Calipari is now also the proud of two new Air Jordan 8 pairs, namely the ones inspired by him.
According to John Calipari’s recent tweet, the 2017 recruiting class of the Kentucky Wildcats is already topnotch, but he claims that they are “not done quite yet.” Some of the athletes that John Calipari is hoping to add to the Wildcats roster include Cameron Johnson, Kevin Knox, Mark Smith and Mohamed Bamba. With the evaluation period already underway, it seems that the foundation is being laid by John Calipari for 2018. The first spring evaluation period began this past Friday, allowing college coaches like Calipari himself to visit certified live events in order to recruit potential prospects.
Sure, John Calipari is definitely pretty busy as of lately, but it seems he still had the time to show off the two pairs from the OVO x Air jordan 8 “Calipari” Pack. Of course, the pack has not yet joined any recent Jordan releases 2017, so he likely received the pairs courtesy of Drake and Jordan Brand. On his official Instagram account (@ukcoachcalipari), John Calipari shared a photo of himself seated on a chair, laced up in one shoe of each Air Jordan 8 pair on each foot. While both iterations are dressed up in the Wildcats colors, he apparently had trouble choosing.
Sneakerheads probably cannot help but feel envious that John Calipari already has both of these kicks, but it only makes sense considering that they were inspired by him. Moreover, soon they will also be able to cop the OVO x Air Jordan 8 “Calipari” Pack once it ends up joining upcoming Air Jordan releases 2017.
