Kentucky has 3 of the top 6 high school players committed for next year and two who are uncommitted have Kentucky on their "list".
BUT.........What happens when Kentucky doesn't have 6 guys go to the NBA draft and you have all this top end talent coming in? How are these kids going to deal playing 15-20 minutes a night instead of 30? Or what happens when a stud freshman comes in better than a stud sophomore and Calipari sits the sophomore?
So far it's been a recipe for success and I think what he has been doing is amazing I just see potential for it to get really ugly.
Oh and how does he do it? Money. Look at the dudes track record. Look at UMASS and Memphis. The guy bends the rules. I think his previous experiences speak loud and clear.
No doubt that this is a system that puts pressure on immediate success as a freshman. There's no other program that will bury you with competition the way Kentucky does.
I feel for these kids, they can have things screwed up so bad my making the wrong choice, and there's no way to really know the right choice.
