A Quick Look
||Rank||Pos. (Rank)||Quick Analysis|
|Anthony Davis||#1||PF (#1)||The former guard is a force down low since he is a tremendous shot blocker and rebounder and is very good at guarding the perimeter against smaller players. He is simply a very tough match-up due to his versatility and has the ability to create shots for his teammates.|
|Michael Kidd-Gilchrist||#3||SF (#1)||Gilchrist is one the top players in the class not because of his talent or physical abilities but because of his leadership abilities and work ethic. He never takes a possession off and is an impact player in every aspect of the game. Gilchrist defends and rebounds the ball very well and his competitive drive makes him a consistent force on both ends of the court.|
|Marquis Teague||#6||PG (#1)||Teague is the best point guard in the class and is the most dangerous player in transition and open-court. He is extremely quick and his first step gets him by almost every opposing defender he faces. His high basketball-IQ is what makes him elite and his ability to create shots for himself and his teammates as well as his ability to change speeds allows him to take over games and be the big-time player he is.|
|Kyle Wiltjer||#25||PF (#6)||Wiltjer is one of the best shooting big men in the class. He can knock down the three and hit mid-range jumpers where he is deadly on the high post. He is not very athletic or quick but he is a smart big-man who is a good rebounder as well. Wiltjer also passes well out of the low post and thrives in pick and roll situations and in transition.|
The Wildcats have the best class in the country with three of the top six recruits in power forward Anthony Davis (#1), small forward Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (#3) and point guard Marquis Teague (#6) heading to Kentucky next fall. Not only did they get three players who are the best at their respective positions, but they got great balance since Teague is a floor general, Gilchrist plays on the wing and Davis plays down low. Even with point guard Brandon Knight and small forward DeAndre Liggins leaving to go to the NBA, the Wildcats will still have a great team since they are reloading at almost every position. This recruiting class also legitimately rivals the great John Wall, Eric Bledsoe, DeMarcus Cousins and Daniel Orton class from a couple of years ago. Another important piece of this unbelievable class is power forward Kyle Wiltjer (#25) who is among the best shooting big men in the country and plays well on the perimeter. He will add another unique skill set to Kentucky next year and the Wildcats will be a top two team in the country thanks to John Calipari’s outstanding recruiting class.
