Calipari, Kentucky signs 6 to latest top-flight recruiting class, including 4 top-10 prospects


LEXINGTON, Kentucky — Kentucky has landed one of its top recruiting classes with the signing of six highly rated prospects, including four ranked top-10 nationally.

The school on Thursday announced the signings of forwards Eldrice "Bam" Adebayo, Wenyen Gabriel, Sacha Killeya-Jones and Tai Wynyard and guards Malik Monk and De'Aaron Fox. All are rated at least four-star prospects by national recruiting services; Adebayo, Fox, Gabriel and Monk are ranked among the top 10.

Monk, 6-foot-4 and 185 pounds, is considered the top shooting guard in the 2016 class. Two services rate the 6-9 Adebayo, who has experience with USA Basketball, sixth overall. Kentucky coach John Calipari said Thursday in a release that his latest highly rated class all wanted to play together and "wants to be one of the best groups ever."
