Best Class?The Wildcats are on top again.
Over the past three years John Calipari and his ‘Cats reeled in not only the best class in the SEC, but also in the country. In 2012 they have a top 10 group overall and the best class in the SEC.
Goodwin, of Sherwood (Ark.) Sylvan Hills, is known for his competitive nature and ability to attack the basket. Cauley, a native of Kansas, stands 7-feet tall, runs the floor well and is a stand out on the defensive end.
While the Cats have only two commits, they could have up to six total scholarships available in the 2012 class, so expect their class to get better before the late signing period concludes.
Other Winners?It's clear that Billy Donovan loves to stock pile guards. Last year the Gators added Brad Beal to a team that was already full of talented guys on the perimeter.
4. Mississippi State
5. South Carolina
Ogbueze ranks No. 39 overall, while Frazier checks in at No. 87 in the 2012 recruiting class. Graham is regarded as a three-star prospect.
