Kentucky Wildcats Recruiting Class Wise to Skip International Competition This Summer

Mark Zerof-USA TODAY Sports

The Kentucky Wildcats have the top rated recruiting class in college basketball history playing for Lexington next year, and they have all decided to forego international competition this summer in order to better prepare for their freshman year. This is wise on their part and will likely lead to better chemistry on the court next year.

Recently read an excellent piece by Matt Jones where he mentioned that this years Kentucky Wildcats team will probably get to practice against pro level talent.

“During the NBA lockout a couple years ago” Jones wrote. “The 2011-2012 Kentucky Wildcats scrimmaged with the Oklahoma City Thunder for an entire week in the Joe Craft Center” Michael wrote. “Anthony Davis, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, Terrence Jones and Darius Miller got to try their hand at guarding Kevin Durant on the wing, while Marquis Teague and Doron Lamb took their best shot at Russell Westbrook. The Thunder went on to reach the NBA Finals that year; Kentucky won the national championship.”

Could another national championship be in the Wildcats future? It just might be so, but the games are played on the court and not on paper.

Thanks for reading y’all, that is it for today but check back in tomorrow here at Rant Sports Prep.
