From CBSSports.com’s Candid Coaches series:  “Kentucky will likely enter the season ranked No. 1 considering the Wildcats are enrolling the nation’s best recruiting class and also return two first-round picks. With all the talent on the roster, it’s difficult to imagine the Wildcats not being among the sport’s elite. But, of course, you can just point to last season as an example of what happens when talent doesn’t mesh – and things go downhill in a hurry.

Andrew and Aaron Harrison will immediately form one of the best backcourts in the country, and that doesn’t include top-10 recruit James Young. Up front is likely top-five NBA draft pick Julius Randle and five-star bigs Dakari Johnson and Marcus Lee – along with returnees Alex Poythress andWillie Cauley-Stein.
