John Calipari gets recruits. Other college basketball coaches try to mimic what he does, but none can match his success over the past three years.
There is little doubt that he is the best recruiting coach in college basketball today. In his time at the University of Kentucky, no other coach can match his recruiting numbers.
He has landed more top 10 recruits than any other coach in the past three years. He has put more players in the NBA. And he's won a national championship.
When you think about it, no one attribute of Calipari stands out. But combine everything he brings to the table, and no coach can match his accomplishments in the past few years.
