Rivals.com released its final Rivals150 today and three Wildcats can be found in its Top 10.

First, De’Aaron Fox makes the list at No. 6, behind fourth-ranked Lonzo Ball as the best point guard. Bam Adebayo is right behind Fox at No. 7, followed but Malik Monk at No. 9 for the third top-10 spot.

1. Josh Jackson, Kansas
2. Harry Giles, Duke
3. Jayson Tatum, Duke
4. Lonzo Ball, UCLA
5. Markelle Fultz, Washington
6. De’Aaron Fox, Kentucky
7. Bam Adebayo, Kentucky
8. Jonathan Isaac, Florida State
9. Malik Monk, Kentucky
10. Miles Bridges, Michigan State

Wenyen Gabriel isn’t too far behind at No. 13, while Sacha Killeya-Jones is No. 24 in the rankings. Marques Bolden is No. 11.

Furthermore, as TJ Walker notes, all five Wildcat signees earned five-star status. John Calipari’s last class with all five-star prospects? The 2011 class, which went on to win the national title.

    I dunno about 40-0, but I like our odds on winning that last game more every day.

    How can a kid that didn’t play all year be ranked #2?

    Let’s wait and see how they play. The last class to have all 5 star prospects was the 2013 class which ended up being a DISASTER (Except final 4). The twins were not that good, Young not that good, Dakari not that good, Randle refused to pass and we are currently trying to kick off the last member of that class M.Lee to make room for Bolden.

      And yet they have the same final four banner hung as the 38-1 team. Who cares how the regular season goes, it’s how you finish
