Kentucky’s Movin’ On Up In The Recruiting Rankings

Fish don’t fry in the kitchen; beans don’t burn on the grill.  Took a whole lotta tryin’ just to get up that hill.

Actually, it didn’t take Kentucky much tryin’ at all.

The Wildcats have climbed all the way up to the #2 spot in’s latest recruiting rankings thanks to the recent signings of Enes Kanter, Doron Lamb and Brandon Knight (sort of).  While Terrence Jones says he’s chosen Washington over UK now, if John Calipari can turn him, the Wildcats will probably take over the top spot currently held by Memphis.

Interestingly, despite back-to-back disappointing seasons for the league as a whole, SEC schools are tearing it up on the recruiting trail.  The SEC currently has five schools ranked in Rivals’ Top 25… which ties the ACC for the most schools ranked by a single conference.  That’s not bad company to be in.

Here’s the latest Top 25 from Rivals:

1.  Memphis

2.  Kentucky (Enes Kanter, Brandon Knight, Doron Lamb, Stacey Poole)

3.  Ohio State

4.  North Carolina

5.  North Carolina State

6.  Missouri

7.  Syracuse

8.  Texas

9.  Tennessee (Tobias Harris, Jordan McRae, Trae Golden)

10.  Duke

11.  Michigan State

12.  Wake Forest

13.  Illinois

14.  Marquette

15.  Connecticut

16.  Stanford

17.  Georgetown

18.  UCLA

19.  Florida (Patric Young, Casey Prather, Will Yeguete, Cody Larson, Scottie Wilbekin)

20.  Virginia

21.  California

22.  South Carolina (Damonte Harris, Bruce Ellington, RJ Slawson, Brian Richardson, Eric Smith)

23.  Kansas

24.  LSU (Matt Derenbecker, Andrew Stringer, Ralston Turner, KC Ross-Miller, Jalen Courtney

25.  Baylor

(Random sidenote — Since I quoted the theme from “The Jeffersons” at the top of this story, I’ll bet that most of you didn’t know that that famous theme was co-written and sung by Ja’net Dubois, who played Willona Woods on “Good Times.”  And I just found a way to make a Willona reference on
