UK's recruiting class tabbed "nation's best"

With the addition of point guard Eric Bledsoe, first-year coach John Calipari has UK back on top of the recruiting world.

UK’s 2009 class of recruits, which includes Bledsoe, Daniel Orton, Jon Hood, DeMarcus Cousins and Darnell Dodson, is the top-rated group by Rivals.com.

The Wildcats last topped the charts in 2004, with a recruiting class that included Randolph Morris, Rajon Rondo, Joe Crawford and Ramel Bradley.

Calipari could add guard John Wall, tabbed by Rivals.com as the nation’s best player, which, some would argue, would represent the best recruiting class in college basketball history. Wall still has Kentucky among his list of schools that he’s considering.

Rivals.com top-10 list, includes:

1. Kentucky
2. Villanova
3. Texas
4. Georgia Tech
5. North Carolina
6. Kansas
7. Oklahoma
8. UCLA
9. Connecticut
10. Indiana
