Kentucky Basketball Recruiting: Prioritizing Wildcats' Top 2015 Targets
USA TODAY Sports

Whether you're on the coaching staff or a fan of Kentucky basketball, there is no offseason. With the summer session of AAU basketball and camps in full swing, there's no doubt that the biggest buzz word in college basketball is recruiting.

Kentucky head coach John Calipari stands next to no one when it comes to recruiting, as he's regarded as the best recruiter at the head coaching level. His recruiting classes at Kentucky have included four No. 1 classes and a No. 2 class according to 247Sports

One of the reasons that he's so good at compiling talent like those classes is his ability to prioritize the players he needs to go after and that he has a backup plan if that falls through. Does it help that these players are often ranked toward the top 20 in their respective classes? Absolutely. But, regardless, Calipari always has a plan of attack when it comes to recruiting.

This slideshow will attempt to go inside Calipari's mind and rank the five most important players the Wildcats are targeting in the class of 2015. This doesn't have as much to do with talent as it does with fitting the team culture in Lexington.
