As you may have already heard, 2010’s Brandon Knight and 2011’s Michael Gilchrist have committed to play for Kentucky. While the news was widely expected, the impact of these two commitments on the program can’t be underestimated.
The addition of Knight certainly vaults Kentucky’s class into the ten best in the country, and the potential additions of Doron Lamb, Terrence Jones or CJ Leslie, among others, would push it even further toward the top. Meanwhile, Gilchrist’s commitment is the first piece of what could be an absolutely monstrous class for 2011.
So tip your bourbon back, Cat fans. Arguably the best player in each of the next two recruiting classes has decided to don the Big Blue, and other fanbases are melting down as we reload. It’s a great day indeed.
