Coach Calipari and Company are putting together one of the best recruiting classes in his tenure at UK for 2020.
With Terrence Clarke, BJ Boston, Lance Ware, Cam’Ron Fletcher, and 2021 potential reclassification Devin Askew, the Cats are in good shape before the Spring recruiting period has even started.
Before the Champions Classic on Tuesday, 2020 No. 2 overall recruit and UK Target, Cade Cunningham, announced he was committing to Oklahoma State and would join his brother who was hired as an assistant coach.
Prior to Cunningham’s decision, all the momentum was with Kentucky, even with recruiting guru, Evan Daniels, logging a prediction for the Cats back in October. This now making him 56/57 on his 2020 predictions.
Now, it looks like Kentucky was right there and Cunningham was extremely close to being a Wildcat.
Tipton Edits, a popular social media account, creates the edits for nearly every top recruit when they commit.
Meaning, he definitely has some inside information as he communicates with the recruits prior to their commitment and he posted this.
It looks like he is very confident in saying Kentucky was right there for landing Cunningham’s services.
Even without Cunningham, Kentucky is good shape with five-star guards Devin Askew and BJ Boston.
In recent years, Kentucky has finished second on several elite of the elite recruits including James Wiseman and Jaden McDaniels among others. While some of these recruits have committed due to special connection such as having family on the staff or their high school coach becoming a head coach.
While Kentucky is not struggling for recruits and we are spoiled as fans with the No. 2 ranked class, I want to regain that spot at the top and have the top recruiting class once again, and to do that we need to close the deal on the elite of the elite recruits.
