Less than two hours after landing the No. 1 player in the Class of 2010, Kentucky coach John Calipari got the top player in the Class of 2011.
With senior point guard Brandon Knight already having chosen Kentucky on Wednesday, junior wing Michael Gilchrist said he will follow him to the Bluegrass State.
“I’ll be going to the University of Kentucky. I like Coach Cal a lot, his staff and I like the fans there a lot. This is a blessing,” the 6-foot-7 Gilchrist told ESPNU.
A junior at Elizabeth (N.J.) St. Patrick considered the top high school player in the nation regardless of class, Gilchrist said Oregon and Villanova were his other two finalists.
