Cal Summarizes 2011 Cats

After all the dust settled on the 2011 Kentucky class signatures, John Calipari released a series of tweets about the four signees and this statement on about the latest members of the Big Blue Family.

UKCoachCal: These are not just terrific basketball players, but they’re terrific students and terrific people as well. Most importantly, they all have an unbelievable attitude about winning. They all wanted to play together knowing they’re going to have to sacrifice a little bit of their game for their teammates. With this group, it adds to what we already have within our program. These are four of the best, which is what we want to recruit here.

Anthony Davis: has always loved Kentucky. He’s 6-10, but he plays like a guard... He has unbelievable skills, passing and shooting and gives us an extraordinary shot-blocking presence.

Michael Gilchrist: When you look up the definition of ‘warrior’ in the dictionary, there is a picture of Michael Gilchrist there. No one plays harder or is more competitive. He has a tremendous burning desire to win, that will drive us & elevate everyone in the program.

Marquis Teague: Marquis is not just quick, but quick with the ball. He also has an unbelievably fierce desire to win. He played on the U17 team with Michael (Gilchrist) and when they stepped into the game together, games changed.

Kyle Wiltjer: Kyle gives us the size that we need because the bigger and longer we are, the better we are. He knew who we were getting here and wants to play w/ the best & be coached in a way that elevates his game.
