Kentucky’s Calipari checks in on 2018 forward Simi Shittu

Kentucky coach John Calipari checked in Tuesday on Simi Shittu, the 6-foot-10, 225-pound forward from Vermont Academy and the CIA Bounce AAU program.

Calipari called Vermont Academy coach Alex Popp as well as Shittu’s mother.

“Calipari was excited that Simi is just 17 years old,” Popp said. “He was also excited to hear that Simi is a gym rat. He mentioned that Simi is very fortunate to be playing the game of basketball in this era. Cal said the trend right now is positionless basketball and that’s what Simi is.

2017 NY2LA Sports Summer Jam Notebook
Recapping some of the top performers at last week's tourney in Milwaukee.


Hundreds of club basketball teams converged at the NY2LA Sports Summer Jam in suburban Milwaukee last week. Many of squads featured big time prospects at the 15U, 16U and 17U levels.

With over 1,500 coaches in the bleachers during the NCAA live evaluation period throughout the tournament, and just about every high major program represented by a head or assistant coach, high school players had a chance to prove themselves against other high level prospects from across the United States, Canada and Australia.

Burlington, Ontario native Simi Shittu plays his prep ball at Vermont Academy and was one of the highest rated prospects in attendance at the Summer Jam running with CIA Bounce. Shittu has been on the radar since earning MVP honors at a freshmen All-American camp and has been improving ever since.

A 6-9 face-up four, with the skill and athleticism to potentially play on the wing, all the national recruiting analysts rank Shittu among the top 10 prospects in the Class of 2018 but that hasn’t made him complacent.
