5-Star SG Malik Monk Says John Calipari Has Made Him "A Top Priority" In Kentucky's Recruiting Class

Bentonville (Ark.) Lepanto five-star shooting guard Malik Monk is just one of the top recruits playing in the Peach Jam this weekend in South Carolina. It is widely expected that Monk's eventual college decision will come down to Arkansas or Kentucky, and the talented prospect told Kyle Tucker of The Courier-Journal that UK head coach John Calipari has made it clear he is a "top priority" for the Wildcats in 2016.

This battle between SEC rivals should be a fun one. For what it's worth, the Razorbacks hold the edge over Kentucky in Monk's 247Sports Crystal Ball.
