Coach Calipari and his Kentucky Wildcats landed a recruiting hall in the 2009 class that has the opporutunity to go down as the greatest class in the history of the college game. Most thought Cal would have a difficult time ever duplicating a haul similar to the sensational six. That's until the possiblities of his 2011 class began coming to the forefront and made us realize that the 2009's title as greatest ever may be short lived!
Coach Calipari has four visitors from the 2011 class visiting Rupp Arena for Senior day, and all four have Kentucky high on their list of potential suitors. Michael Gilchrist, Marquis Teague and Quincy Miller represent the #1, #2, and #3 players in their class and a young man by the name of Deuce Bello, will be joining them. Bello is an athletic freak of nature and is quickly ascending up the recruting rankings and has a chance to be a top 25 player before its all said and done.
So, yes, you read that correctly. Kentucky will have the top three ranked players in the 2011 class visiting them tomorrow. That's not just the top 3 players at their respective positions, folks. That is the TOP 3 players in the class OVERALL. Let's take a look at the aforementioned visitors VIA some youtube excitement.
If, and that's a big IF, Coach Calipari can manage to land this class and another one or two (Cal may have as many as 7 schollies available in 2011), you will be looking at the GREATEST rankings based recruiting haul of all time. Ridiculous, folks. Everyone knew that Cal and the Kentucky brand would be devestating, but I don't think anyone expected these kind of amazing classes!
Roy Williams, Jim Bpeheim, Bill Self, Jay Wright and Coach K the bar has been set high. Can you keep up?
2010 visitor Enes Kanter, whom decommitted from Washington, is already on campus today and Josh Selby is supposed to be joining him. A busy and star studded weekend for the Cats, who are quickly becoming the most en vogue team in the country.
