Kentucky Wildcats super freshman Anthony Davis is the best player in college basketball right now. He’s got fame up the wazoo, and he’ll soon have millions of dollars when he becomes the #1 pick in the NBA Draft this June. Oh wait, he plays for John Calipari, meaning he’s already likely getting paid lots of money….hey, hey! No of course, I kid Calipari and his recruits. I’m just kidding about that.

Anyways, now what we’ve established what Davis has going for him in life: the guy did put up a quadruple double in high school, now we can make fun what he doesn’t have going for him.

Kentucky Wildcats Super-Recruit Posted a Quadruple Double

A year or so ago, Kentucky Wildcats recruit and  McDonald’s All-American Anthony Davis wasn’t on anyone’s short list of blue-chip college basketball prospects. But after growing seven inches in a year, he now finds himself the #2 overall recruit in the nation (Duke commit Austin Rivers is #1) today.

I caught up to him Tuesday night; right before he had the opportunity to meet Chicago Bulls superstar Derrick Rose, a McDonald’s All-American in 2007.

“I was 6′ 3,” then my junior year I was 6’5,” until this summer and now I’m 6’10,”” he said.

Kentucky and Duke lead all schools with four McDonald’s All-Americans in this class, and in the history of the designation, UK has scored the fourth highest number of McDonald’s All-Americans. All time, the state of Illinois has produced the 3rd most prospects of any state. Davis is a Chicago native who prepped at Perspectives Charter.

Davis was joined Tuesday night by Michigan State commit Branden Dawson and Louisville incoming freshman Wayne Blackshear.
