Kentucky Wildcats coach John Calipari is on the recruiting trail, but also took the time to watch his son, Brad, play some high school basketball. It just so happened that, according to ESPN’s Jeff Borzello, that Brad’s team was playing that of five-star power forward and Kentucky commit Wenyen Gabriel.
Calipari’s presence at the game was reported on Twitter by multiple sources.

ESPN’s Jeff Goodman also tweeted a witty remark.
Brad Calipari drills a 3. Kentucky offer coming soon.

Either way, for Calipari to still hit the recruiting trail to watch his son play Gabriel after the Wildcats suffered a devastating loss to Auburn, Gabriel must be one heck of a player.
