Jai Lucas Leaving Kentucky For Duke

Coach Jai Lucas was on staff for one season and can be pinpointed as the main recruiter for Cason Wallace, Shaedon Sharpe and Daimion Collins. Today, Travis Branham of 247Sports broke the news that the Texas grad and 2 year assistant was leaving Kentucky for a position with Jon Scheyer and the Duke Blue Devils.

In quite possibly the most important offseason for Calipari in his tenure at Kentucky, he loses his lead recruiter to the school that has won 17 of the last 20 head-to-head recruiting matchups against Kentucky.

The rumors were quickly shushed momentarily last week, and Kentucky was on a roll announcing the return of National Player of the Year Oscar Tshiebwe, and receiving a commitment from Illinois State transfer Antonio Reeves. The news today is yet another kick in the gut to Kentucky Men's Basketball fans.
