Ben Rothstein(CBS) came out late last month with his SEC power rankings. He listed UK as # 1 overall and had a couple of interesting comments about the Cats.
They’re outstanding but they’re probably not as hyped as the last few recruiting classes. 6-10 center Nerlens Noel was the number one prospect in the Class of 2012 and Alex Poythress and Archie Goodwin are two dynamic wings that can score ball at will. Unlike the past few years where Calipari has brought in a dynamic lead guard, there is no true floor general in this year’s crop of incoming Wildcats. The real sleeper of this group according to several people in Lexington is Willie Cauley, a 6-10 big man who should be ready to play immediately.
