Once again, John Calipari and the Kentucky Wildcats have one of the top recruiting classes in the country.

However, Coach Cal and his staff didn’t have a normal recruiting class, as they only brought in three freshmen. Instead, they turned to the transfer portal and brought in a lot of veteran talent heading into 2021-22.

A lot of media outlets have already released their final rankings for the 2021 class, but Sports Illustrated released their final rankings on Wednesday.

As expected, Gonzaga Bulldogs commit Chet Holmgren came in at No. 1 overall with Duke Blue Devils commit Paolo Banchero right behind him.

As for the Kentucky commits, TyTy Washington is the highest ranked, as he came in at No. 12 overall and is the No. 3 overall point guard.

Daimion Collins is not too far behind him at No. 15 overall. He’s also listed as the No. 3 center.

Bryce Hopkins is the final Kentucky commit coming in at No. 34 overall, and he’s also the No. 5 power forward.

Former Kentucky commit Nolan Hickman came in at No. 21 overall.
