Forget about the Fab Five. What about the Super Seven? That is what John Calipari is on the way to possibly achieving, and it would be truly historic if it ends up happening.
Julius Randle’s recent commitment gives the Kentucky Wildcats 6 of the top 20 players in the 2013 college basketball recruiting class. This is already impressive in and of itself.
All they are waiting for now is the crown jewel. Number one prospect Andrew Wiggins has not announced his intentions yet, but the Wildcats are on his list. If he ends up joining Big Blue Nation, then Kentucky would have seven out of the top 20 players in the recruiting class. That is just plain dominant.
The North Carolina Tar Heel fan in me is completely terrified that Wiggins will spurn the Heels and join the mast talented recruiting class in college basketball history.
Wiggins is so private that is impossible to say which way he is leaning, but the Wildcats could end up having a team with five freshman starters and two freshman off the bench. What a sight that would be to see; this may be wrong, but 7 freshman at the top of the rotation might be a first in college basketball history.
Calipari just keeps upping the ante, and he continues to make the historic look routine.
