Top 5 Recruiting Classes & Top 5 Players on the Board
The NCAA’s early signing period ended Wednesday and, once again, Kentucky and coach John Calipari were the big winners.

Kentucky is involved with several of the top unsigned players who will wait until the spring signing period beginning in April, meaning he could still put together arguably the greatest class in the history of recruiting.
