With the dual announcement of Jabari Greenwood and Darius Fullwood, Stoops and staff moved Kentucky inside of 247’s composite rankings top twenty for the second year in a row.
Last season the Cats finished the year with a recruiting class ranked 22nd on 247’s composite with and average player rating of 86.68. Despite a 2-10 record the recruiting success has continued with a current player rating of 86.7 for our 12 commits.
Their current ranking is ahead of Florida (28th, 88.99 avg), Oregon (32nd, 88.28 avg), and Michigan (35th, 89.37 avg). The ranking is also currently 9th in the SEC but with plenty of big names out there Kentucky could still move up the list. Mississippi State is also currently ranked ahead of the Cats but they have 18 and a 86.55 average so you should expect them to slide down the list as other schools get more players.
If Kentucky can haul in players like George Brown Jr., Cece Jefferson, and the crown jewel Damien Harris then they will just keep on climbing. Perhaps they even move to the top half of the SEC.
Where do you thin Kentucky will finish in 2015?
