John Wall coming to Kentucky

This morning it was announced that John Wall, the No. 1 rated high school player in the country will go to Kentucky. If you are a UK fan, like myself, you are pretty much beside yourself with the possibilities of next basketball season. The roster for next year, even if Jodi Meeks doesn't return, is pretty incredible. It is definitely the #1 recruiting class in the country.

This roster is brought to you by John Clay from the Lexington Herald-Leader. You can see his post here: http://johnclay.bloginky.com/2009/05/19/updated-uk-basketball-roster/

Notice from the roster the five freshmen: DeMarcus Cousins, Jon Hood, Daniel Orton, Eric Bledsoe & John Wall. It is definitely the Fab 5 of the 21st century. I joke that with this roster the NCAA will announce that Kentucky will have to play in the NBA next season.

Now we have to see whether Jodi Meeks will return to Kentucky or not. I hope he does, but it wouldn't be the end of the world if he pursues his NBA dreams this year. Go Cats!

I'll leave you with a little taste of John Wall.
