Alex Poythress to Kentucky

When decision day came for 6-8 combo-forward Alex Poythress (Northeast, TN) the 2012 prospect started to field calls and eliminate schools.

He reportedly field calls to his four finalist but only one got good news from the five-star forward. Poythress decided to add himself to the already nice 2012 recruiting class of Kentucky.

He joins shooting guard Archie Goodwin and center Willie Cauley.

Poythress is a forward that is ranked highly by just about every scouting service. His athletic ability is off the charts and coach Calipari is getting an athlete that can get it done at two positions.

UK's top class streak may not be in jeopardy after all. Coach Calipari is in on many other recruits such as Shabazz Muhammad, Anthony Bennett, Jarnell Stokes and Amile Jefferson.
