Report: UK Signee Skai Labissiere Recruiting 5-Star Center Stephen Zimmerman To Come To Kentucky

With seven players leaving Lexington to turn pro, Kentucky has some open roster space for 2015-16. Not surprisingly, head coach John Calipari is in the running to land several of the top remaining uncommitted prospects, including Las Vegas (Nev.) Bishop Gorman center Stephen Zimmerman. 

Zimmerman is the No. 9 player and third-ranked center in the country according to 247Sports' Composite Rankings. The nation's No.3 player and top center prospect, Skai Labissiere, is already signed to play for Kentucky next season, and apparently wants Zimmerman to join him.

I'm sure this news will excite BBN fans. Labissiere, Zimmerman and Marcus Lee would be quite the front line next season.
