Kentucky Offers '07 JC PF; Eyes Visit

The University of Kentucky has one scholarship left for 2007 and is set to host one of two remaining prospects they've been targeting this weekend. Nemanja Calasan, a 6-foot-9, 235 pound power forward from Midland (Tx.) JC spoke about his recruitment through email.

"No, I didn't commit anywhere," Calasan wrote. "I'm leaving home to clear my mind from all those colleges and in the middle of June, I will decide where I want to go."

Purdue and Kentucky are the final two suitors Calasan is looking at and according to the native of Serbia and Montenegro, both have offered.

The Wildcats, who are looking to use its final scholarship, will host the 6-foot-9, 235 pound power forward this weekend.

"I was suppose to be there tonight but my fight got cancelled because of the bad wather in Dallas," Calasan stated. "I will be there on the weekend."

Calasan, who signed with Utah in the fall but was released from his letter-of-intent after the former coaching staff was fired, took a trip to see the Boilermakers during the week.

"The Purdue visit was very nice and I like it a lot."

In the end, the decision will be made after his trip to Lexington this weekend. The Wildcats have already signed Patrick Patterson and Alex Legion in the spring signing period and are looking to use its final scholarship on another big man.

When asked what he was looking for in a school, Calasan answered: "Very good coaches and teammates who can make me and the TEAM better day by day," Calasan wrote. "School with who I gonna win many games night by night. I hate to lose."

"A school with a very good education what is important to me."

When asked to describe his game, Calasan compared himself to a former college basketball star and current Detroit Piston.

"Chris Webber," Calasan said, "back in the days from the Sacramento Kings."
