The Penny-mania that has galvanized the city of Memphis and become a dominant talking point in college basketball circles over the past few weeks has also threatened John Calipari’s recruiting plans for his old hometown.

Penny Hardaway’s hire as the new head coach of the Memphis Tigers was expected to cause a recruiting splash, and it has. How much it will hurt Calipari and the Cats remains to be seen, but the nation’s recruitniks are watching closely.

UK’s 2019 recruiting strategy was apparent early, and it centered on Memphis, Calipari’s stomping grounds for nine years before he came to Lexington.

James Wiseman and DJ Jeffries were teammates with Team Penny — a squad founded and coached by Hardaway — on the Nike circuit, and they were the first two prospects from the 2019 class to land scholarship offers from UK.
