During his visit to Kentucky for Big Blue Madness, Greg Wiltjer had one particular point he wondered about and wanted to ask UK coach John Calipari eye-to-eye.
“We had some unanswered questions,” said Greg Wiltjer, the father of 6-9 Portland, Ore., five-star prospect Kyle Wiltjer. “There were a few things we wanted to ask about academically. I wanted to know about Calipari’s future at the school. We had some concerns.
“With as much publicity as the school gets and with things on the Internet, I wondered how long he would be there. I wanted to talk face-to-face and see where his head was. Just some intangibles you normally cannot pick up on the phone.”
And what did Calipari tell him?
“He told us I am here. I am dedicated to the program. I am excited about these young men. He talked about the strength of this recruiting class and that he was there to stay. I know anybody’s career could have an opportunity come along and change things, but my sense is that I feel confident he there while my son is there,” Greg Wiltjer said.
