Early UK target Cage still has Cats high on his list

In a rare move, Kentucky Coach John Calipari offered M.J. Cage — a 6-foot-9 power forward from the class of 2016 — a scholarship before the player had even started his sophomore season. But the UK coach had a special tie to this prospect. Cage's father is Michael Cage, the 15-year NBA veteran who once led the league in rebounding. Calipari coached Cage for one season with the New Jersey Nets.
