Rivals.com released updated rankings for the 2010 recruiting class yesterday, and there are quite a few names in the Top 25 Kentucky fans should be getting cozy with by now:
1. Brandon Knight (pictured above)
7. Will Barton
16. Roscoe Smith
17. Joe Jackson
21. Kyrie Irving
24. Doron Lamb

There are a lot of Top-100 prospects considering us, as well. There I just mentioned it. Now leave me alone.
