In a span of just 2 hours, Kentucky locked up the #1 recruit in the class of 2010 in Brandon Knight and the #1 player in the class of 2011 in Michael Gilchrist. This was a really big day for Kentucky basketball. And believe it or not, John Calipari is not done yet.
So far Calipari has locked up Stacey Poole, Enes Kanter and Brandon Knight for next season and Michael Gilchrist for the season after. But also on the radar are CJ Leslie, Terrence Jones, and Terrence Ross (Jones and Ross are a very possible package deal) for 2010-2011. And that’s not to mention another possible 2011 commitment coming up in Marquis Teague.
While Teague is a little bit of a long shot (he has been rumored to be Louisville’s to lose in the past), the word on the street is he’s leaning toward UK now. That would be a huge slap in the face to Cardinal fans and would make my offseason. Teague is set to make a verbal commitment toward the end of this signing period.
