Skal Labissiere is now reckoned to be the #1 recruit by Rivals.com. Believe it or not, this is only John Calipari’s 2nd #1 Rivals.com recruit, the first being John Wall back in 2009. In retrospect, it’s really hard to believe Anthony Davis was only #2 and not #1. Former #1 Ben Simmons (LSU) is now ranked #2.
Kentucky now has the #1 (Labissiere), #10 (Isaiah Briscoe) and #48 (Charles Matthews) ranked recruits in the 2015 class according to Rivals. UK is still involved with a number of highly ranked recruits, most of them in the Rivals.com top ten including Thon Maker (9), Cheik Diallo (5), Brandon Ingram (4) and Jaylen Brown (3).
