After the likes of Anthony Davis and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist proved that one-and-done players can get it done, Kentucky's model of recruiting seems to be the model of success.

That is why Kentucky fans were so disappointed to miss out on recruit Amile Jefferson.

Jefferson is the 25th-ranked basketball recruit on ESPN's Top 100 going into the 2012-13 season, and committed to Duke a few months ago over other top teams like Kentucky.

In his senior year of high school, Jefferson averaged almost 20 points, 10.2 rebounds and 2.7 steals per game.
