Kentucky guard Brad Calipari, the son of Wildcats coach John Calipari, has found a new home. After a weeks' long exploration in the transfer portal, he announced Monday he'll finish out his career in the Horizon League with Detroit Mercy.
"It's always been a dream of mine to make a major impact on the court on the college level and I believe the best opportunity to do that is at the University of Detroit Mercy," Calipari said in a statement after exploring his options over the last month.
As a graduate transfer, Calipari will have immediate eligibility beginning in 2019-2020. Because he redshirted last year, he has two seasons left to play at the collegiate level.
Calipari as a walk-on at Kentucky has been an end-of-the-bench player for the Wildcats. In two seasons in Lexington, he averaged 2.7 minutes, 0.4 points and 0.1 assists per game in limited playing time. At Detroit Mercy, his usage should increase; Detroit's depth in the backcourt was lacking last season.
