Next year's signees...

The first team of Parade All-Americans were announced today. Of the Kentucky signees for this fall, only Anthony Davis made the first team. Trevor Lacey, a Kentucky target, is also on the first team.

Michael Gilchrist and Marquis Teague were named to the fourth team, which is very surprising to me.

Parade does not have the full list on their website yet. Compare that to the McDonald's All-American lineup, which features Wildcat signees Michael Gilchrist (SF), Anthony Davis (PF), Marquis Teague (PG), and Kyle Wiltjer (PF).

Davis, a 6-10 Power Forward, will likely be jumping center next season. Wiltjer is a 6-9 Power Forward as well. Our inside presence next season is going to be similar to that of last year when we had both Patterson and Cousins playing the post.

All four Kentucky signees are five star players according to Rivals. Teague will either be starting at PG or playing behind Brandon Knight. We don't know who is going to go pro or who isn't.

I can say for sure that no matter what Terrence Jones decides to do, we will be stacked with a nice inside presence.
