07:15 AM ET 06.25 | Even if Kyle Wiltjer won't be going with them, the Wildcats have gained some momentum this offseason. Based on reports he's getting about summer workouts, John Calipari's grand plan is ahead of schedule. After bemoaning a lack of depth and practice competition during a disappointing 2012-13 season, Calipari said an influx of talented freshmen is already pushing his returning players. "Now there's competition. Now you really see guys blossom," Calipari said Monday on the annual Southeastern Conference coaches' summer conference call. "It's been a short period of time right now, but what you see is they're on a mission like some of my best teams have been on." ... Calipari said sophomores Alex Poythress and Willie Cauley-Stein are benefiting most.
