Calipari: “We just lay off until the kid publicly de-commits”

Kentucky coach John Calipari defended his team’s 2.0 GPA and recruiting policies.
According to the Lexington Herald-Leader, Calipari said his he doesn’t contact recruits that have committed to another school.
“If he’s committed to a school, then I would not (contact the recruit),” he said. “There’s no rule against it, there’s no law against it. I just don’t do it.”
Washington and Kentucky are vying for Portland recruit Terrence Jones, who committed to the Huskies last Friday.
Calipari’s stance contradicts reports he lured former UW recruit Enes Kanter and gave a sales pitch to Jones after he picked the Huskies at a news conference.
