John Calipari Trying to Hold Back Expectations of 2013 Class

John Calipari wants everyone to settle down.

He has written an article on CoachCal.com where he says it is unfair to say the 2013 class is the “best ever” and says it isn’t fair to them before they ever make it to campus.

Well, sorry coach, but when you get the #1 point guard, #1 shooting guard, #2 shooting guard, and #1 center in the same recruiting class, comparisons like that are going to happen.

Anyway, Cal did mention how many more he could add to the class.

With that being said, you can’t say that next year’s class is the best ever before they’ve even gotten here. We’re not even done yet. We may still sign another kid or two, but that’s not the point. Let them get here, let them figure out how hard they have to work and then let them figure out how together they’re going to have to be – how they’re truly going to have to be their brother’s keeper.

Like every team I’ve had, they are going to have to learn how to play more for their team than for themselves, yet they’re going to have to break comfort barriers that they’ve accepted their whole lives. Every game will be the other team’s Super Bowl.

Julius Randle and Andrew Wiggins are the only 2 recruits presumably left on the board for Kentucky in 2013.

Wiggins’ teammate Xavier Rathan-Mayes has already signed with Florida State, his parents both were Seminoles, and there is a report that said he doesn’t want to be in the spotlight.

Julius Randle recently told ESPN’s Dave Telep that one player he would like to take with him and play with in college is Andrew Harrison.

Those are the facts about each recruit…who is next for John Calipari?
