Are We Seeing The 96-98 Title Run In Recruiting Classes?

When John Calipari joined forced with the University of Kentucky, everyone under the sun knew it would be a deadly combo.  But this good?  Only Gregg Doyel really believed it.  But could Kentucky be experiencing an unprecedented three year run in recruiting?

Check it out, by the numbers.

Rivals rankings by position:

1.   John Wall

2.   Demarcus Cousins

6.   Eric Bledsoe

4.   Daniel Orton

We all know that recruiting championships don’t equate to NCAA championships… but it sure is nice to be on top year after year.  So what do you think KSR folk, will this kind of recruiting magic be caught again?  Will Calipari continue to turn in one “best class in the history of college recruitment” after another?  And at what point does LeBron decide to take his talents to Rupp Arena?
