John Wall has committed to play at Kentucky next season and given John Calipari another one-and-done point guard to help run the dribble-drive motion offense that turned Derrick Rose into the NBA Draft's top pick a year ago.

"It was a great job (Calipari) did the last two years with his guards,” Wall told Scout.com on Tuesday. "I think my relationship with Coach Cal pushed (UK) over. The other coaches did a great job, but that relationship got (UK) over."

Wall is the consensus top point guard in the Class of 2009.

DraftExpress.com has him projected as the No. 1 pick in the 2010 NBA Draft.

He chose Kentucky over Miami, Duke, Florida, Baylor and a host of other programs.

This development will make Kentucky the preseason SEC favorite and should have the Wildcats in position to steal some votes from Kansas for the top spot in many national polls. Assuming Jodie Meeks withdraws from the NBA Draft (he has until June 15 to do so), a possible starting line-up at Kentucky looks like this:

G: John Wall
G: Jodie Meeks
G: Darnell Dodson
F: Patrick Patterson
F: DeMarcus Cousins
