It's ridiculous to think about the amount of talent headed to Lexington (Ky.). They'll bring in the nation's top player – Anthony Davis – as well as top 10 players – Michael Gilchrist and Marquis Teague – and top 20 prospect Kyle Wiltjer.
Davis, of Chicago (Ill.) Prospective, has a unique, but quite effective game. At 6-foot-9 he has extreme length, impressive mobility and an impressive skill set.
Gilchrist, who used to sit atop the Scout.com rankings, has one of the best motors in high school basketball and will be an instant impact player on the wing, while Wiltjer brings a different aspect to the post, as he's one of the better shootsers in the country.
Teague will continue Calipari's long line of major point guard talents. Ranked as the top lead guard in the country, Teague uses his athleticism and speed to break down defenders and he's an impressive passer.
Other Winners?It's safe to say that Arkansas reeled in the second best class in the conference.
5. Mississippi State
11. South Carolina
Young, a 6-foot-4 floor general, is one of the best drivers in all of high school basketball. He has great speed, a strong handle and the athleticism to finish above the rim once he's there.
Mickelson and Madden are both prospects that we see being impact contributors for the Razorbacks right away as well.
