No, GREAT recruits want to get paid ASAP.
They would not come to college if they didn't have to.

lost to 4 power house basketball schools baylor duke notre dame and louisville
will probably win the conference again and make alittle bit of noise in the tourney.
if you think Kentucky's recruiting strategy is bad then you don't understand college basketball. 1 and done are players who are NBA ready out of high school meaning they will be one hell of a player in college. That is why Kentucky won the national championship with a good bit of freshman.
the way it works in college basketball
top teams get best recruiting classes players turn pro after one year
middle of the road will get middle of the road players turn them into good players after 3 or 4 years.
middle of the road teams may have a chance once every 4 years to win it all
top teams have a chance every year even though a majority of their payers are one and done.

I have been telling people this since about midseason when I saw all the freshmen playing. There is a slight difference though. If you bring in NFL caliber talent and you RS them then you get two yrs on the field with them. If you do not RS and play them some right away you have them available for three yrs. This does not apply to every player but certainly those that show league promise...
A lot of kids are now looking at the logjam in front of them at other programs and see opportunity to play soon here.
