UK Coach John Calipari and assistant Barry Rohrssen were at Mater Dei High School in California on Tuesday to see class of 2016 standout M.J. Cage.
Cage — the son of former NBA player Michael Cage — was one of the first prospects in his class to land a UK scholarship offer. Scout.com ranks the 6-foot-10 post player as the No. 41 overall recruit in the junior class.
Calipari is no stranger to Mater Dei. That’s the school that former UK recruit Stanley Johnson played for before signing with Arizona. Cage also has offers from Arizona, UCLA, Southern Cal, San Diego State and several other programs.
The UK coaches were also out west earlier this week for another visit with class of 2015 star Stephen Zimmerman.
