Earlier today, comments from D.J. Jeffries father surfaced following the four-star forwards decision to  back off his commitment to Kentucky.


Jeffries father, Corey Jeffries, said on ESPN Radio Memphis that the UK coaching staff was unprofessional in how they handled the decision. Well, he now has explained what upset them.



Jeffries told the The Commercial Appeal in Memphis the following.


”It wasn’t Cal that took it so bad,” said Jeffries. It was the main recruiter (Tony Barbee).


Corey Jeffries also explained that D.J. was bothered that a UK coach didn’t show up for his final AAU game in Vegas.



“It was the last game of his summer career, so he was expecting somebody to be there,” Corey Jeffries said. “I think it kind of bothered him. That kind of shook him up a little bit.”


The most interesting quote involved Memphis and Calipari have a new rival on the recruiting trail.


“I think it’s about to be fun,” Corey Jeffries said. “Cal had Duke going at him, but Cal doesn’t have a whole lot of competition on the recruiting trail. To see somebody get a leg up on him, it’s kind of interesting. We’re enjoying it, to be honest.”


Sounds like Kentucky might have dodged a bullet with this situation.

    Your son is a good ball player and a 4 star trying to play with 5 star players. We wish him the best of luck and a great future. His choice is probably a good one. Try and not criticize UK for giving him a chance to play. It’s his decision.
