Coach Cal and Kentucky show interest in Montverde's Ben Simmons


Ben Simmons, a 5-star forward in the class of 2015 from Melbourne, Australia, tweeted "Good talk with Coach Cal" on Friday evening. This seems to indicate Kentucky and coach John Calipari are interested in Simmons. Ohio State and Florida have already offered.


Last season Simmons was a Montverde Academy (FL) teammate of incoming Kentucky center Dakari Johnson and incoming Florida point guard Kasey Hill, and remains a current teammate of Ohio State commit shooting guard D'Angelo Russell. Simmons began to play for Montverde Academy under head coach Kevin Boyle late last season, in time to contribute to the Eagles' national championship run.
