In the last few years, my interest in recruiting has soured. It just wasn't as fun to follow Kentucky's basketball recruiting. Now that John Calipari is head coach at Kentucky, my interest in recruiting has returned. Here are my top 16 recruiting classes from 1970 to the present date:
We recently caught up with Brandon Knight at the NBA Top 100 Camp. Knight is currently ranked as the top player in the country by both Scout.com and Rivals.com. Knight likes the recent success John Calipari has had with developing point guards for the NBA.
