Kentucky Wildcats claim top class in Scout Rankings

The Kentucky Wildcats claimed the top class in the latest team rankings.

Thanks to commitments from five different five-star players, UK is sitting at the No. 1 spot as the spring signing period is coming to a close soon. That includes four guys ranked in the top 13, the highest of which being point guard De'Aaron Fox at No. 6.

However, Duke is close enough that they'll pass UK with a commitment from five-star center Marques Bolden. But if Bolden commits to UK, that would bolster what already has the potential to be the best class John Calipari has ever assembled.

Here's what wrote on the latest class of Wildcats:

#1 Kentucky Wildcats

Another year on the recruiting trail and another year that John Calipari and Kentucky sit at the top of Scout's top 25 class rankings. Although they were pushed by Duke, the Wildcats have four of the nation's top 13 prospects headed their way, led by the No. 6 overall prospect De'Aaron Fox. To go with four five-star prospects, Kentucky also has No. 27 overall prospect in Sacha Killeya-Jones. The Cats will at the very least lose Tyler Ulis, Skal Labissiere and Jamal Murray to early entry, but they'll reload once again with the nation's top class.

Notable Commitments: De'Aaron Fox, Edrice Adebayo, Malik Monk, Wenyen Gabriel & Sacha Killeya-Jones
