07:53 AM ET 01.20 | If one mentions the series of visits that Luke Kennard has taken to Lexington recently, the prep star's father knows what you may be thinking. " Kentucky's the leader," says Mark Kennard, not confirming the statement, but merely acknowledging that the notion exists. ... Ask Kennard himself, and that's not necessarily the case. It's true that the five-star junior guard has taken at least five unofficial visits to UK since Coach John Calipari offered him a scholarship last summer. It's also true that he grew up rooting for the Wildcats. ... The truth of his recruitment is that, for the time being, UK is merely one of seven schools vying for his commitment. ... His finalists also include Duke, Louisville, Ohio State, Michigan, North Carolina and Florida.

I'm not a fan of Kentucky, but I will say one thing about Coach Cal... he's a coach.

Watching this group of Freshman grow up right before our eyes has been nothing short of spectacular watching where some of these kids started, as compared to where they are now.

Most notably Andrew Harrison. At season's beginning he looked lost, overwhelmed, and immature - now he looks like the steal of the draft when someone picks him between 14-30. All of that is Calipari.
