The only thing left to do, really, is to start a slow clap for John Calipari. The finalization of the Rivals150 for the Class of 2013 showed that the Kentucky basketball program will be welcoming the best class in the country to Lexington. This particular group could be the best of any class, for any school, ever. Power forward Julius Randle, point guard Andrew Harrison and shooting guard Aaron Harrison are each the top-ranked player at their respected position. Center Dakari Johnson, small forward James Young and power forward Marcus Lee are all ranked as five-star players as well. Each of the six are McDonald's All-Americans -- making this the first class in history to assemble six players from the prestigious event -- and all six are ranked among the Top 20 prospects in the country. This is where the slow clap builds steam.
