Kentucky already has the makings of an exceptional men's basketball recruiting class in 2011.
The Wildcats have commitments from Michael Gilchrist, a 6-6 forward from Elizabeth (N.J.) St. Patrick, and from Marquis Teague, a 6-1 point guard at Indianapolis Pike.
Gilchrist is the top-ranked junior in the country and Teague is ranked No. 5 by Scout.com.
North Carolina has a commitment from No. 2-ranked James McAdoo, a 6-8 forward at Norfolk (Va.) Christian, and Duke has a commitment from No. 14-ranked Michael Gbinije, a 6-6 forward at Richmond Benedictine.
None of the commitments are binding on the schools or the players. The players can sign scholarships in the fall.
