John Calipari breaks down 2017 Kentucky Basketball recruiting class

Coach Cal breaks down the Cats’ four-man signing class.

John Calipari has pulled off yet another big-time recruiting class that will keep the future of Kentucky Basketball very bright.

After landing five-star point guard Quade Green on Saturday night, UK now has the No. 1 recruiting class in 2017. Combined with P.J. Washington, Nick Richards and Shai Alexander, this is already a better haul than 90-95% of what the rest of college basketball will gave in 2017, but for Kentucky, it’s just the start of what Calipari hopes to land.

On Sunday, Cal broke down UK’s 2017 class, compared the newest Cats to former Cats, and made sure to note that UK is far from done in this class with so many guys expected to leave next year.

“When you lose 7-8 guys, you can’t replace them with four,” Cal said. “You gotta replace them with at least six. That’s where we’re looking to go.”
