Have you ever wondered who were the best recruits to sign with UK? According to 247 some would surprise you and then some we all knew are top talent.
According to 247, 2022 recruit Shaedon Sharpe is the top UK recruit since the ratings were developed, with a perfect 1.0000 rating. He surpasses former #1 rated player, Nerlens Noel who had a rating of .9999. All world Anthony Davis, a member of UK’s last National Championship team also had a .9999 rating.
Considered to be the biggest flop in UK recruiting, Skal Labissiere had a .9998 rating and was the #4 rated UK recruit. Unfortunately, the pressure of big time college play at Kentucky proved too much for Skal as he never materialized into the player the Wildcats thought they were getting.
There is a reason UK gets the cream of the crop. Kentucky players make it to the NBA at a far greater pace than any other college program.
Below are the top 10 UK recruits according to their rating.
3 – Anthony Davis6-10 / 220 – 0.9999
4 – Skal Labissiere6-10 / 200 – 0.9998
5 – Julius Randle6-9 / 250 – 0.9996
6 – John Wall6-4 / 184 – 0.9994
7 – DeMarcus Cousins6-9 / 250 – 0.9993
6-6 / 190 – 0.9990
9 – Andrew Harrison6-4 / 200 – 0.9987
10 – Karl-Anthony Towns7-1 / 248 – 0.9986
Since Coach Cal has been at UK, his players are making it to the NBA greater than any other team in College Basketball.
