    Imagine if they get Andrew Wiggins next, no one will be able to beat them next season... SMH If they land Wiggins you are looking at a class that will never be top... I can see Calipari leaving if Kentucky wins it all next season, considering how hard is to win year and year out with freshman... Plus he will never have class as good as the one in 2013... Let's take a closer look at that class if they get Wiggins...


    Andrew Wiggins top 1 player...
    Julius Randle top 3 player...
    Andrew Harrison top 5 player...
    Aaron Harrison top 5 player...
    James Young top 10 player...
    Dakari Johnson top 12 player...
    Marcus Lee top 20 player...
    Derek Willis top 100 player...

    Wow talk about a team who can beat some of the low tie NBA east teams...

    Wow, 2 top 20 prospects wouldn't even be starters. That's gotta suck for their value.

    It would be huge but definitely need Goodwin, Cauley-Stein, and Poythress back.

    Definitely 2 out of the 3.

    If Wiggins doesn't go to Kentucky, they will not live up to their billing next year. They need him worse than people realize.

    Hopefully he goes to Florida State.

    As a Duke fan, I hope he goes to UNC. The Duke v. UNC game would be so epic with Jabari vs Wiggins

    Duke would beat them. Just as good of a recruiting class bringing in Jabari, Semi and Matt. Also Rodney Hood will be eligible next year with Amile and Sulaimon returning. Coach K will always have the coaching advantage over Cal. Duke is going to have a squad next year with a few experienced players leading the way (Cook, Thornton, Jefferson, Sulaimon). I'd take that experience and coaching any day.

    Duke and kentucky are both going to be pretty great next year. and if wiggins does go to kentucky, and most of the current freshman stay that team is going to be loaded, and extremely interesting to follow.

    hey progs, do u know anything about uh's basketball recruiting class for next year?

    Lurch don't forget another Plumlee will be with Duke next season and Hairston is a solid role player that can bang inside...Duke will actually have athletic players next season, along with talent... Kentucky and Duke might be the cream of the crop for next season, and there will be a big gap between those two and the rest of the college teams...

    I completely agree. I meant no disrespect towards either Marshall or Josh. Josh is a great hustle player and I like what he bring defensively. Plumlee is going to be interesting to watch. He's a 7 footer so hopefully he can turn that into an advantage. I'm anxious to see the kid play. If he reaches his potential, it may be destined for Duke vs Kentucky in the National Championship.

    As Kentucky fan, I hope at least a couple of players would stay more than 1 year. No matter how much talent we have, without leadership, there wouldn't be NCAA title.

    Also as a reminder, wasn't Shabazz Muhammad supposed to be a lock for first pick of this years draft?? To early to tell how these kids pan out. For all you know Aaron Gordon could land number one pick over Wiggins.

    Kentucky will go undefeated even without wiggins. punk ass duke cant even lick the leftover sauce off U.K.s plate. Yall r trippin with the duke talk. wiggins could go to duke and we would still smash them raggedy, preppy, mommas boys.

    Didn't Duke beat Kentucky earlier this season or did you forget already? I'm gonna guess you forgot since the season ended so long ago for you guys.

    Don't hold your breath on the 3rd Plumlee, at least not offensively. But keep an eye out for both Rodney Hood & Amile Jefferson - they could make for an amazing 4 rotation.

    I just hope Parker 1) rebounds from his injuries & 2) buys into Coach K's system.
