Memphis recruits could follow Calipari to Kentucky

 CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) - John Calipari is heading to Kentucky to coach the Wildcats. And some of the members of his top-ranked recruiting class may be going with him.

Calipari flew to Lexington, Ky., Tuesday night to finalize details on the deal and Memphis has scheduled a press conference Wednesday to discuss the future of the program - which may not include some of the nation's top prospects.

Xavier Henry, a 6-foot-6 guard from Oklahoma City, Okla., signed a letter of intent with Memphis in November, but at a McDonald's All-American game press conference early Tuesday, Henry said he could be looking for a new school with Calipari's departure.

Henry is not the only Memphis recruit participating in the McDonald's All-American game who is in limbo. DeMarcus Cousins, a 6-foot-11 center from Mobile, Ala., would also reconsider his verbal commitment he made to the Tigers in early March.
