Rivals predicts Kentucky will miss out on four of its biggest targets

Rivals.com really punched Big Blue Nation in the recruiting gut today with its predictions for some of the top prospects in the Class of 2017.

Eric Bossi, the national analyst predicting the horrible news, believes John Calipari will miss out on four of his top targets: Trae Young, Mohamed Bamba, Hamidou Diallo and Kevin Knox.

He predicts Young will stay home in Norman to play for Oklahoma; Bamba will rip out our hearts by signing with Duke; Diallo will go to Syracuse; and Kevin Knox will join Bamba as a Blue Devil.

That, my friends, would really suck.

Read Bossi’s picks, which are hopefully garbage, right here.

    If you is “predicted” to land 4 out of the top 13 players in the country, what players do you think Cal WILL get?

    The only way Rivals is ever right is by constantly adjusting their projections. A snapshot taken today is meaningless.

    I don’t see anyway that Duke gets Bamba and Carter, with Bolden likely being back as well. Won’t happen.

    If Duke gets Mamba, Carter, Trent and Knox then it’s over! That is to devastating for any team to overcome …. Something tells me that there have been some late developments with Young, Cal might have gave him the ultimatum to commit/sign early or he’ll take Green. He does not want the early period to come and go without having a PG signed. A class with Green, Walker, Washington and Richards is not bad. Add a few more to that core and UK will compete.

    I hope Cal can pull something off. We could be in trouble next year if not. Hope its not a Nerlens Noel NIT kinda team. Damn Duke .
