John Calipari Is Close To Compiling His Best Recruiting Class Ever At Kentucky

Kentucky basketball recruiting class.

Kentucky Recruits

John Calipari is the greatest recruiter in the history of college basketball, so the following statement should really impress you: the Kentucky coach is very close to compiling his greatest recruiting class ever. 

The Wildcats got a commitment this morning from five-star power forward Bam Adebayo, bringing Kentucky's commitment total in the 2016 class to four. Currently, UK has commitments from four five-stars - Adebayo, point guard De'Aaron Fox, power forward Wenyen Gabriel and power forward Sacha Killeya-Jones. 

Many recruiting analysts believe Coach Cal will have his "best class ever" if Kentucky can get a commitment from Malik Monk, a five-star combo guard who's expected to commit to the Wildcats. That commitment would give Calipari five five-stars and the No. 1 class in the country - his likely best class ever.
