Calipari to talk signing day on ESPNU at 4

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
On his update Tuesday, UK head coach John Calipari suggested good news could come Kentucky's way for the first day of the spring signing period.

"There will be some big things announced Wednesday," Calipari said. "Hopefully there's going to be a lot of Kentucky attached to it."

Later Wednesday we could find out. To talk about the potential recruiting class and Wednesday's opening festivities, Calipari will join the ESPNU crew of Paul Biancardi, Lowell Galindo and Adrian Branch at 4 p.m. for the signing day show.

A warning to those trying to hear Calipari talk about the entire recruiting class: There's a chance Calipari might not be able to talk about any of the prospective student-athletes for several reasons.

No. 1, just because Wednesday starts the spring signing period doesn't necessarily mean UK will receive any commitments. Even if the Cats do, UK must have a National Letter of Intent in hand before any school official or representative can talk about the recruit. Also, it must be pointed out that a National LOI and a scholarship agreement are two different things, so there could be several potential road blocks from hearing Calipari talk specifics.

Unfortunately, the same rules that apply to Calipari apply to me or any other employee of UK. Until a prospective student-athlete signs that LOI, I'll be prevented from talking about him.

UK is certainly hoping to have one or two in hand, but if you're curiously scratching your head as to why there is no news on the Web site, now you know why.
