Kentucky a ‘legitimate landing spot’ for Caleb Swanigan

It may come as no surprise, but John Calipari’s Kentucky Wildcats could be on the verge of landing the latest five-star big man in the past few seasons.

According to CBS Sports’ Jon Rothstein, Kentucky is a “legitimate landing spot” for center Caleb Swanigan.

The recruiting power of Calipari strikes again.

After initially committing to Michigan State, Swanigan decided to withdraw his verbal commitment. After that, it was believed that Swanigan was going to end up with the Purdue Boilermakers.

However, now that he remains unsigned and Kentucky has shown interest, there is another major player that has shaken things up.
