Kentucky recruit John Petty recently spoke to Larry Vaught about his recruitment and more.
Petty said he really appreciates John Calipari's brutal honesty during the recruiting process.
Here is an excerpt:
John Petty says even though he was the first player in the 2017 recruiting class to get a scholarship offer from Kentucky, coach John Calipari was brutally honest with him.
"Coach Cal is a great guy. He is always honest with me and if I decide to go there told me that I have to work hard and be competitive, which I am," said Petty. "I will probably be a two guard in college, so I have to learn to handle the ball better. I am getting more comfortable with the ball, too."
Petty also admitted that he has always been a UK fan:
"I have been a Kentucky fan since I was a little kid. To finally get a chance to get recruited by them is exciting," Petty said.
Petty, a 6-foot-5 shooting guard, ranks No. 28 overall on the Rivals.com list for 2017.
