Kentucky Basketball Recruiting: Miles Bridges hints at package deal with Malik Monk

'Wide Eyes Emoji'

The Kentucky Wildcats and John Calipari have their sights set on another historic recruiting haul in the Class of 2016.

A good way to ensure that happens would be to get commitments from five-star wing Miles Bridges and five-star shooting guard Malik Monk. It just so happens Bridges tweeted out a possible hint at a package deal with Monk today:

The only school believed to be strongly in the running for both players is none other than...Kentucky. The Cats are the heavy favorites for Bridges in his 24/7 Sports Crystal Ball, while Arkansas is leading UK in Monk's 24/7 Crystal Ball.

If the Cats are able to land these two guys, it's hard to see UK not having the No. 1 or 2 class in 2016. Monk is a consensus top-10 prospect while Bridges is ranked in the top 20 of every recruiting service.
