Quaker Valley Star Guard Adou Thiero Receives In-Person Offer From John Calipari and Kentucky

Published

on

Adou Thiero has been the talk of WPIAL basketball this season as he and Markus Frank led Quaker Valley to a WPIAL 4A Championship over Montour and to the PIAA Finals.

Following a season in which he averaged 23.3 points and 10 rebounds per game, Thiero received his first D-1 offer from Duquesne and also was receiving interest from programs such as Pitt, Ohio State, Marquette, Cincinnati, West Virginia and Indiana. Today, Thiero not only received interest, but an offer from one of the Blue Blood programs in the country, the Kentucky Wildcats.

After traveling to Hershey to watch him in person against Neumann-Goretti, John Calipari made an in-home visit to Adou and officially extended him an offer.

During his freshman season, Thiero traveled to Kentucky and took part in a basketball camp conducted by Calipari and his staff. The ties to the Moon Twp. native don’t stop there.

Adou’s father, Almamy, played college basketball for Calipari, when he was head coach of the Memphis Tigers.

With 6 ships available to give out, Capel didn’t see the point in offering a local kid that just received an offer from Kentucky. That’s mind boggling and disconcerting at the same time.

Kentucky’s recruits , at this time, not counting portal transfers lining up, are 3, 5* high school recruits for 2022. They were snared by the same recruiter who recruited Kentucky’s last national championship team before taking A.C. job at Illinois. Calipari payed him a bundle to come back to Kentucky in 2022 to recruit Kentucky’s next national championship team. He is a nationally known recruiting guru, and should be remembered at Pitt and offered Pitt’s H.C. job; Orlando Antiqua.

Antigua (note correct spelling) was 23-55 in his one & only chance to be a head coach. No school will be hiring him to run their program.
