Yep this is confirmed but multiple sources. Congrats to Kentucky, monster class.

The word around Raleigh is this was against his "inner circle" (Mom and Clifton) suggestions.

heard the same thing about clifton, i know his mom wanted him to stay close to home... but in the big picture, in a year he will be drafted and could be playing in Oklahoma City or Milwaukee, so staying around a year to go to a school that doesnt fit his style of play would hurt...

unbelievable class.....get used to it again Kentucky!! They have a chance to contend for the NC with this class if they gel quickly, but it will be tough to knock off Kansas who has more experience with their team

Now he just has to qualify....if he does, Kentucky may have pulled in the best class in the history of college basketball.

Thank God he went to a non-ACC school. I was hoping that would happen all along. UK is my favorite non-ACC team (besides CofC). I am just glad all the schnangans is over for the recuritment of Wall.

I wouldn't go as far as to say they are the best class in the history of NCAAB, but I would say in the top 25.

Hard to say until you see them actually play, but consider this....

Michigan's Fab Five: Webber (2), Howard (4), Rose (6), King (8) and Jackson (60-something, I think)

Kentucky's class: Wall (1), Cousins (2), and I don't know the rest but I know Orton is way up there, plus Hood, Bledsoe and someone else...all in the top 40. Michigan called itself the Fab Five, but it was really the Fab Four. Kentucky has six studs. I mean, if they didn't have anyone coming back, these guys could win 20-25 games by themselves. Then you consider Patrick Patterson and Jodie Meeks (90-plus free throw shooter)....next year could be special.

Honestly, it all hinges on Meeks. If Meeks comes back then they are a top 5 team competing for a national championship. If he leaves then they are a very talented and very young team. They aren't in that top tier to win the national title without Meeks tho...not with Kansas, Michigan State and Nova all returning KEY final four/national championship contributors. To me they are in that second tier with Duke, Wake, UNC, and possibly Louisville.

To me you don't go from a mid tier NIT team to a national champion on the backs of freshmen in this day and age of basketball.
