Brad Calipari's decision to potentially leave his father's Kentucky side and join another program remains one of the most intriguing transfer sagas of the year. His latest visit will be to a school quite a long way from Lexington.

On Wednesday, Brad's sister, Megan Calipari, said on Twitter that he was visiting Bryant University in Providence, Rhode Island. Brad Calipari would confirm what she said minutes later.

Bryant University competes in the Northeast Conference, and has been a Division I school since the 2012-13 season. However, the Bulldogs have yet to secure a spot in the NCAA Tournament since making the transition.

Formerly a Division II powerhouse, the Bulldogs made it to five straight Division II NCAA Tournaments from 2004 to 2008, including a runner-up finish in the 2005 edition of the tournament.

For Brad Calipari, the visit comes less than two weeks after he made his initial visit to Hartford.

It should come as little surprise that Brad has been giving some mid-majors schools a look. John Calipari himself has suggested that maybe Division II would be ideal for his son.

"I even told him to look at Division II. What’s wrong with that?" Calipari said. "Go to a place where you are well coached, where you get a chance, where you are in a good league. You know Division II basketball, they're just a little smaller, but you've got talented guys."

Regardless, it still seems that Brad Calipari wants to compete in Division I.
