Dominique Hawkins Joins the Kentucky Wildcats Best Recruiting Class Ever

Mark Zerof – USA TODAY Sports

Dominique Hawkins will be joining the Kentucky Wildcats. How many scholarship offers does John Calipari have left?

I wrote yesterday that Andrew Wiggins brother Nick Wiggins said that the Wildcats weren’t the “best fit” for Wiggins. We’ll just have to wait and see what happens there though.

“Truthfully we’ve known since the day we went to the capital and we went to UK’s campus,” Madision Central coach Allen Feldhaus told “We knew then. They told us they wanted to keep this under our hat until they take care of their business with their players. I think he’s glad to have it out of the way. It’s been hectic with all of the questions. It’s kind of a relief for all of us.”

Congratulations to Hawkins; it should be a fun ride to be a part of next year. He better have fun, because he is not likely to get much playing time next year. If he stays all four years though, then he might end up getting some run.

“He’s grown up a Kentucky fan,” Feldhaus said. “His mom and his grandmother have been Kentucky fans all their lives. Dominique followed in right behind them. How many kids grow up a Kentucky fan and don’t want to go to Kentucky?”

Hawkins is Kentucky’s eighth pledge in the 2013 class; it has been widely praised as the best college basketball recruiting class ever. Now we’ll just have to see if Wiggins joins the party in Lexington.
