Top High School PG John Wall Committs to Kentucky (NICE)

According to Slam Online, the nation's top high school point guard John Wall committed to the University of Kentucky last night.  Damn!  John Calipari is already starting to stack up the talent and he hasn't even been the coach for much more than a month now.

Wall is an explosive 6'4" PG with a great all around game.  He can absolutely sky as you can see by the incredible dunks, layups and blocks in the video above.  He also looks like he has a nice little outside jump shot which will only improve with time and practice.  He is already being compared to Derrick Rose and those comparisons will only intensify now that he will be playing for Calipari at Kentucky. 

Expect to hear this kid's name a lot next year during the college basketball season and NCAA tournament as he will most likely be the most high profile Freshman in the country.  Kentucky still has a lot of talent returning and it sounds like Jodie Meeks might pull out of the NBA Draft (which would be a good decision in my opinion).  The Wildcats sound like they might actually have a chance to compete for an NCAA Championship in Calipari's first season as coach.  That's crazy to think about now but it's definitely a possibility.  Kentucky will be very fun to watch next season.  I can't wait.
