John Calipari has done it again, the Kentucky basketball coach putting together a strong finish to sign maybe his best class ever -- which is saying something -- as the Class of 2016 early signing period wrapped up this week.

I talked with Herald-Leader recruiting writer Ben Roberts of Next Cats about some of the surprises of the class. Ben went over each player individually, including Bam Adebayo, De’Aaron Fox, Wenyen Gabriel, Sacha Killeya-Jones, Malik Monk and Tai Wynyard.
