Now that the dust has settled from Louisville’s win over Michigan in the national championship showdown on Monday, college basketball fans are turning their attention to the anticipation for next season. Where to start? Well, that’s easy because Kentucky commit Dakari Johnson of Montverde (Fla.) Academy guaranteed the Wildcats would be the last ones standing in 2014.
By luring six All-Americans – all of whom will participate in Saturday’s Jordan Brand Classic at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn — John Calipari has solidified his fourth No. 1 recruiting class in his five-year tenure with the Wildcats. According to each member of the Super Six, winning is all that matters.
“I don’t feel the pressure or the hype,” said Julius Randle, a 6-foot-9 power forward who is tabbed as a top-three prospect in the country. “I know people have been talking about it, but I don’t go looking for that stuff. We want a national championship and that’s it. That’s all I want. I think it’s every kid’s dream to win it.”
