LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky has added three more pieces to what's considered its greatest recruiting class with the signings of Julius Randle, Dominique Hawkins and Dakari Johnson.
Highlighting this group are McDonald's All-Americans Randle and Johnson, both of whom are expected to improve the Wildcats' frontcourt.
Randle, a 6-foot-9 forward from Plano, Texas, is considered a top-five prospect and was co-MVP of the Jordan Classic all-star game. Johnson, a 6-10 center, is listed by Rivals.com as the nation's No. 9 overall prospect after leading Montverde (Fla.) Academy to the National High School Invitational championship.
Hawkins, from Richmond, Ky., led Madison Central High School to the state title and is the state's Mr. Basketball. The 6-1 guard averaged 20.4 points and 5.6 rebounds during the Sweet 16 tournament and was most valuable player.
