Andrew Wiggins No. 1, Kentucky with four top 10 recruits in new Rivals’ ranking

Apr 15, 2013, 2:31 PM EDT

Rivals has released their final rankings for the high school class of 2013, and it should come as no surprise to anyone that has paid attention that Andrew Wiggins is tops on that list. He also happens to be one of just two players ranked in the top 100 that has yet to commit to a school; Wiggins is deciding between Florida State, Kentucky, Kansas and North Carolina.

The rest of the top ten includes four Kentucky recruits (No. 2 Julius Randle, No. 5 Andrew Harrison, No. 7 Aaron Harrison, No. 9 Dakari Johnson), two Florida commits (No. 6 Chris Walker and No. 10 Kasey Hill), an Arizona recruit (No. 3 Aaron Gordon), a future Dukie (No. 4 Jabari Parker) and an Indiana recruit (No. 8 Noah Vonleh).

Kentucky has a vice-like grip on the nation’s best recruiting class, but would be the case for anyone with a class that includes four top 10 recruits, six McDonald all-americans and the potential to land Wiggins.

      Well we all know UK is in fact POINTGUARD U.
      Calipari has brought in the nation’s #1 ranked point guard 3 out of 4 years while head coach at UK with stellar results.
      2009-10 John Wall Elite 8
      2010-11 Brandon Knight Final Four
      2011-12 Marquis Teague NCAA Champs

      The 2012-13 season is the only season in which Calipari didn’t have the nation’s #1 ranked point guard at his disposal.
      Also the 2012-13 season is the only season that Calipari did not have any returning starters from previous season that could produce and show some leadership.

      But once again the nation’s #1 ranked point guard will be in Lexington.

      2013-14 Andrew Harrison Nation’s #1 ranked point guard

      Once again POINTGUARD U will thrive again.

      Now, I’m not predicting a championship prior to Wiggins commitment to UK.
      But,if Wiggins decides to come to UK.

      BE VERY AFRAID

    Last years class was ranked first as well. Maybe a second NIT game is in the future!

      Last years class was ranked 2nd to Arizona’s #1.
      Kentucky..errr..POINTGUARD U will thrive again because the nation’s #1 ranked point guard picked UK.
      2012-13 season was the only season in which Calipari didn’t have the nation’s #1 ranked point guard.

      #1 ranked Point guard’s have been a key factor in Calipari’s first 3 seasons.

      2009-10 John Wall Elite 8
      2010-11 Brandon Knight Final Four
      2011-12 Marquis Teague NCAA Champs

      Everybody knows how important a good floor general is to having success in college basketball.

      2012-13 season was a failure due to inadequate point guard play and the lack thereof of floor generalship qualities that Calipari relied on so heavily during the 2009-12 seasons.

      To get to the point,Ryan Harrow was a complete bust at his time at UK.
      N.C.State fans tried to warn us of Ryan Harrow,telling us the team tabbed Ryan as “bubble-guts” due to his propensity to under achieve in pressure situations.

      Opposing fans who just say Robert Morris know nothing of why UK failed in 2012-13 season,but just want to say “You had a #1 recruiting class,and you went to the NIT and lost”

      As a UK fan I am so ready for 2013-14 season to lay to rest those “Robert Morris” quotes.

      Yes,once again POINTGUARD U will thrive again thanks to Calipari bringing in the nation’s #! ranked point guard yet again.
      Not to mention also bringing in the nations #1 ranked SG,Center and PF to boot.

      I’m not gonna guarantee a championship,but rather say it’s going to be another good to great season.

      Yeah they were but you have to gel as a team with alot of talent but unlike the year before there were no leaders. Everyone keep hating on UK but the reality is NCAA basketball isnt what it use to be they need to keep these kids in school atleast 2 years.
