The recruits keep lining up for John Calipari

Kentucky basketball head coach John Calipari has always been an elite recruiter. In fact, he has even been the nation's most successful recruiter over the past four seasons.

However, what he has done in the past few weeks is unprecedented and downright legendary. Calipari's 2013 recruiting class already has five commitments, including three players in the top five of their class according to ESPN.

Marcus Lee is a tweener 4- or 5-star who will likely rise up the rankings during his senior season. Meanwhile, Kentucky boy Derek Willis will represent the commonwealth for the next few seasons in Lexington.

As great as it already is, the class is not complete. Before all is said and done, there is a very good opportunity that the Wildcats add one or even two more 5-star players, including the possibility of signing the country's top-ranked player, Julius Randle.

How does Calipari do it? Read the next five slides to see what he has to offer recruits that no other coach in America can match.
