The 2021 recruiting class is finished for the Kentucky Wildcats and once again John Calipari has brought in some of the top talent in the country.

In the final Recruiting Services Consensus Index (RSCI) rankings, the Cats brought in two top 15 recruits and a third was ranked inside the top 40.

RSCI takes all of the well-known recruiting services and combines their rankings for form one consensus ranking.

This system takes the top 100 recruits from ESPN, Rivals, 247 Sports, and VC, then assigns points to each player based on their position in each list. The top player gets 100 points, No. 2 gets 99 and so on to No. 100 getting 1 point. RSCI then combines all four scores to get the consensus rankings.

The first Kentucky recruit on the list is Daimion Collins at No. 12 overall and the No. 5 power forward.

TyTy Washington is next on the list at No. 14 overall and the No. 3 point guard.

The final Kentucky signee, Bryce Hopkins, came in at No. 33 overall and was ranked as the No. 11 overall forward.

Here is the entire top 15 with their final point totals:

1. Chet Holmgren – Gonzaga (400 points)

2. Jaden Hardy – G League (394 points

2. Paolo Banchero – Duke (394 points)

4. Jabari Smith – Auburn (387 points)

5. Patrick Baldwin – Wisconsin-Milwaukee (385 points)

6. Caleb Houstan – Michigan (374 points)
