    2. Julius Randle
    3. Aaron Gordon
    4. Jabari Parker
    5. Andrew Harrison
    6. Aaron Harrison
    7. James Young

    10. Chris Walker
    11. Wayne Selden

    Then there is a BIG DROP OFF in the class... But these 14 players have special written on them...

    Don't sleep on arizona. With Aaron Gordon and hollis-jefferson coming in to meet our young core we will be a force. Our young guys got some tournament experience and with a summer to capitalize on their masses of potential I believe we're ready to catch some people off guard. Next year will be exciting, that's for sure.

    Well the rich get richer... Mr. Basketball from Kentucky and Gatordade Player of the year from Kentucky has committed to Kentucky... SMH Now they have their backup Pg... Now if Wiggins commits there it will be a legendary class never to be top off again...

    So far they have the....

    #1 PG
    #1 SG
    #1 PF
    #1 C

    With a high ranked SF and two more PF's in the mix as well.

    IF they did manage to sign Wiggins that would give them the #1 recruit at each position.

    That is insanse to think about.

    At this point Im actually rooting for them to sign Wiggins... They have gotten all these stud players, might as well go for perfection and hope land Wiggins... I want to see all the HYPE and all the blowout wins they would get next season if they get Wiggins... Just imagine this depth chart and yeah if they land Wiggins it would make the Fab Five class look weak... :eek:

    Willey Cauley-Stein/Dakari Johnson
    Julius Randle/Marcus Lee/Derek Willis
    Andrew Wiggins/Alex Poythress/Kyle Whitjer
    Aaron Harrison/James Young
    Andrew Harrison/Dominique Hawkins/Jarred Polson

    This team could beat Charlotte Bobcats,Orlando Magic,Phoenix Suns, and Cleveland Cavaliers...SMH

    Best player in the country and more potential than wiggins to me. His half court game reminds me of zach randolph with a much better motor and athleticism.

    Yeah he was team USA best player along with Parker and Andrew Harrison...Team USA only had one true big man and it showed as they lost...

    I think as of right now that Wiggins,Randle,Andrew Harrison, and James Young are all special players going into college...
