Kentucky’s 2013 recruiting class is almost beyond description. Have you ever heard about one school, in one year, bringing in the No. 1 point guard, shooting guard, power forward and center? Me neither.
Willie Cauley-Stein is returning to fine tune his game and attempt to help his team’s chances in the 2014 NCAA tournament. WCS is a quickly emerging force in the middle. Alex Poythress showed flashes of his huge upside and is looking to have a monster season as a sophomore. Kyle Wiltjer is still a work in progress. As his time increased, his production did too.
John Calipari has done it again. He is a master at connecting with recruits and therefore has a chance to reel in just about any high school player. Andrew and Aaron Harrison will set the pace in the UK backcourt. PF Julius Randle has an amazing skill set that allows him to move off the low-block and look for scoring opportunities while facing up. Dakari Johnson, the nation’s No. 1 ranked center among the Class of 2013, will mostly come off the bench in his first season.
This season will be an interesting opportunity to watch Calipari and the Cats.
