After The Anthony Davis Commitment, Tony Wroten May Be Thinking Kentucky

Posted by CoHoops DeAnte Mitchell

The Kentucky Wildcats embrace one of the best recruiting services in the nation. They have wheeled in the best recruiting classes three years and running.

Their 2009 
class that featured John Wall, DeMarcus 
Cousins, Eric Bledsoe and Daniel Orton are still considered one of the best freshman tandems we've seen. Their 10' class features, Brandon Knight the raining Gatorade Player of the Year, and frontier force Enes Kanter.

class features arguably the top three players from their respective positions.

Anthony Davis Jr committed to playing for Kentucky, and that sets up a commanding trio.

Davis Jr, Michael Gilchrist and Marquis Teague will be in the nations spotlight immediately after they step foot on campus.
However, the Wildcats are still in for a wild recruiting ride. Head Coach John Calipari is not going to stop recruiting now. The 2011' class is still a work in progress, despite the competence.

In an earlier article, I said for this trio to work they would need to 
persuade at least LeBryan Nash, Tony Wroten and Trevor Lacey.

Well despite the infirm recruiting of Wroten Jr, I believe, he still appreciates the Kentucky program and what they can 
make him become.

Wroten Jr has always favored the University of Kentucky. However, number two on his 
list came Rick Pitino and the Louisville Cardinals.

It was speculated
 that Wroten Jr, Quincy Miller and Deuce Bello could come in a package deal for Louisville. However, the 6-foot-4 guard from Seattle, Washington is sensing the Kentucky effect.
After Davis Jr's verbal commitment, few UK Students preferred to conduct a concise recruiting on their own, that makes it sound like Wroten is UK-bound.

It would not be shocking to 
witness him commit here in the next month or so. With Davis Jr committing, Coach Calipari freed up time and could gratify the 6-foot-4 Seattle star.

Either way, the dominoes are starting to fall for the UK program. They have acquired the No. 1 recruiting class in 09', 10' and preferably '11.

One thing we all have to do is respect John Calipari. He sure does know how to recruit and put Kentucky in prime position to win the game.
