Part of it is due to John Calipari showing interesting in seemingly every point guard in 2019 that ‘could’ reclassify into 2018. But part of it is also from rumors that have been swirling since UK’s season ended that Green was considering a transfer. If that came to be, one would think schools like Syracuse and Villanova would be in consideration, being that they were strongly in the running for Green in high school before he picked...
