It was a big win for the Kentucky Wildcats in the recruiting world as Johnny Juzang not only committed to UK but signed on the same day as well.

John Calipari has taken a back seat to Coach K in recent years but it now seems that the old dominance may indeed be back. The Cats have overtaken Duke and Arizona in the 2019 rankings and have reclaimed their spot at the top.

And Cal may not be done.

Jaden McDaniels appears to be close to a decision and that decision very well may be the Cats.

Never count John Calipari out of anything. Ever.
