MBSK 09_10 Uk_Morehead Web 33.jpgNow we can tab it the top recruiting class in the nation.

For the second year in a row head coach John Calipari has hauled in the No. 1 recruiting class in the country, according to Rivals.com. The recruiting-based website tabbed UK's No. 1 over Memphis, Ohio State, North Carolina and North Carolina State, respectively.

UK's recruiting class features five top-33 recruits in addition to junior-college transfer Eloy Vargas. No other school can boast five recruits in the Rivals' top 33.

Here is what Rivals had to say about Kentucky's top-ranked class:

"For a second straight year Kentucky is at the top of the national team rankings. Coach John Calipari has four five-star prospects and a couple four-star prospects joining the 2010-2011 roster. Kanter is a Turkish import who dazzled during the Hoops Summit. Fellow five-star standout Knight should be able to step right in and take over the controls of the dribble-drive offense. A highly-skilled, left-handed power forward, Jones fits in perfectly with Calipari's system. Lamb, the fourth five-star prospect, is a reliable scorer and defender. Poole gives the Wildcats an athletic slasher on the wing who can get hot from 3-point range, and Vargas, a fellow four-star prospect, will provide frontline depth."
