With prospects like Perry Ellis and Archie Goodwin, among many other top names, narrowing their lists and preparing to announce decisions, it’s clear that some of the big dominoes in the 2012 recruiting class are about to start falling. That’s welcome news for Kentucky fans, as not only will it take our minds off of the next three weeks of football games, but will also get the ball started rolling on the next class of recruits to don the Blue and White.
There hasn’t been too much wringing of hands from UK fans over the lack of commitments for next season, and rightfully so because history has taught us that Cal will, without a doubt, deliver one of the top classes in the country. However, many experts have questioned whether he can make up ground on some of the other schools that already have several commitments and snag yet another #1 overall class for the Cats. Considering the list of prospects still interested in Kentucky, including 2012’s crown jewel Shabazz Muhammad, it’s not out of the question that he does end up with the top class, but still is probably a longshot.
I’ll fully acknowledge that, as long as Cal gets the guys he wants, it doesn’t matter what UK’s class is ranked because he knows better than anyone what he’s doing. However, that doesn’t mean we can’t speculate and place our bets on whether he will pull the top-ranked rabbit out of his hat. So, that’s just what we’ll do. Before any names end up on the board for the Cats, put your predictin’ hats on and tell me two things about the next class in the comments section:
Who will be in it?
Will it be #1?
Anybody that gets every name correct will win a date at Boone’s Butcher shop with BTI, at their own expense. Go.
