The top power forward in the country announced live on ESPNU at about 1:18 p.m. today that he will be joining Kentucky’s Super Freshmen class in the fall after also considering Kansas, Texas, and Florida. He is projected to be a top-3 pick in next year’s NBA Draft. The 6-8 Texas native placed hats of the four respective schools he was considering in the table in front of him: Florida, Kansas, Kentucky and Texas—from left to right. Kentucky now arguably has the best recruiting class in the history of college basketball. The Wildcats have already received commitments from Andrew Harrison (the top point guard in the nation), Aaron Harrison (the top shooting guard in the nation), Dakari Johnson (the top center in the 2013 class), James Young (top 10 player), Marcus Lee (top 50 player) and Derek Willis. Andrew Wiggins, the top prep player in the nation and also cover boy of our current issue out (on newsstands now!), is also considering Kentucky. Say what you want about John Calipari, but when it comes to recruiting, he gets it done.
