On Tuesday night, D.J. Jeffries will finally get a chance to play on the Rupp Arena court, more than two years after he had originally planned. Jeffries — a junior at Mississippi State — is a rarity in the John Calipari era of Kentucky basketball. The 6-foot-7 forward was a star recruit in the 2019 class when he committed to Calipari and the Wildcats as a high school junior in March 2018. At the time, he was UK’s first commitment for the 2019 class, a do-it-all prospect who had grown up following Calipari in the Memphis area and dreamed of playing for the now-Kentucky coach.
