Gilchrist a star on both sides of the ball


Each week, the folks over at Rivals are breaking down the top ten recruits in next year’s class in a given category. This week, they rank the best perimeter defenders in the class, with Michael Gilchrist coming in at #3 on the list. The analysts mention his athleticism and motor as the catalysts for his defense, which is not surprising since those are the qualities that make him a great player overall. Personally, the thought of being able to throw Gilchrist and Deandre Liggins at people defensively next season is almost unfair, but I’m not supposed to mention next year so I won’t.

One person who doesn’t have any reservations about talking next year’s recruiting class, however, is Rivals’ recruiting guru Jerry Meyer. He addressed the one-and-doneness of the 2011 class in his most recent mailbag, breaking down the prospects of each of the Cats’ McDonald’s All-Americans to jump to the league after one season. If you’re into reading about such things on a Monday when there isn’t a Tuesday game to think about, you can follow this link. If you don’t want to read about next year’s recruits, you can go up to the corner, click on the banner and donate to the V Foundation. Those are the only two options. It’s up to you.

    Can’t wait to see MG at UK. The kid is a superb talent and he’ll be loved by the Big Blue Nation for the whole six months he’s here:)

    Another one playing for the name on the back of the jersey and not the front. ONE’n’DONE’s are nice… Nice enough for a second place finish in the SEC East and rankeD six spots behing Louisville in all the polls. Think UK will EVER have another Mr. Kentucky Basketball playing for them? Just ask John Hood if he’d reconsider… Now they just go 70 miles down the road. . REAL NICE!!!!!

    5) We kicked Louisville’s ass though. As usual. We win, you lose. Get used to it.
    that goes for football too.
