It was a huge night for UK basketball and John Calipari as two five-star players in the class of 2015 have chosen Kentucky. Skal Labissiere and Isaiah Briscoe will join Charles Matthews to make up the Cats’ current 2015 recruiting class.

Skal Labissiere, a 6’10’‘, 200-pound power forward out of Memphis, Tennessee, is a long, athletic big man — similar build to Anthony Davis — who runs the floor extremely well. He’s currently the 11th best player in the country on ESPN’s top 100.

Isaiah Briscoe is rated as the No. 1 player in the country for the class of 2015 according to 247sports. The 6’3’‘ Newark, NJ native narrowed his focus to Kentucky and St. John’s a few months ago, but in the end, John Calipari and his staff won out.
