Kentucky’s recruiting class is the consensus No. 1…again

Here’s a headline that won’t surprise you: Kentucky’s incoming recruiting class has been ranked No. 1 by all of the major outlets. While that may seem like the norm, this is only the fourth consensus No. 1 recruiting class of the John Calipari Era, joining the 2010 class, the 2011 class, and the 2013 class. Somehow, 247 Sports had the 2009 class that included John Wall, DeMarcus Cousins, and Eric Bledsoe No. 2.

Here’s a handy chart from UK showing where each recruiting class finished in rankings by ESPN, 247Sports, Rivals, and the Recruiting Services Consensus Index (RSCI), which tallies major recruiting rankings and plugs them into a formula to calculate a consensus ranking.

  2009 2010 2011 2012 2013 2014 2015 2016 2017 2018 2019 2020
Rivals 1 1 1 1 1 2 1 1 2 2 2 1
247Sports 2 1 1 1 1 2 1 2 2 2 2 1
ESPN 1 1 1 2 1 2 2 1 2 2 3 1
RSCI 1 1 1 1 1 2 3 1 1 2 2 1

…and one showing the ranking of each member of the 2020 class:

  ESPN 247Sports Rivals RSCI
Devin Askew No. 24 | 5 stars No. 35 | 4 stars No. 31 | 4 stars No. 28
BJ Boston No. 6 | 5 stars No. 5 | 5 stars No. 4 | 5 stars No. 4
Terrence Clarke No. 9 | 5 stars No. 9 | 5 stars No. 7 | 5 stars No. 8
Cam’Ron Fletcher No. 59 | 4 stars No. 76 | 4 stars No. 46 | 4 stars No. 52
Isaiah Jackson No. 32 | 4 stars No. 32 | 4 stars No. 26 | 5 stars No. 26
Lance Ware No. 44 | 4 stars No. 41 | 4 stars No. 34 | 4 stars No. 39

ICYMI, BJ Boston, Terrence Clarke, and Devin Askew have been working out together in California. Yesterday, Aaron Torres spoke to Darren Collison, a former NBA guard turned trainer who has been running those workouts. Do yourself a favor and check it out, along with some footage of the workouts from Ball is Life:

      That’s actually a brilliant Troll name, but your comments are pretty low grade. Wasted a good handle on a sub par Troll…
