Kyle Wiltjer announced during halftime of Saturday's Boost Mobile Elite 24 all-star game in California that he is committed to play college basketball at Kentucky, meaning John Calipari now has pledges from four prospects who MaxPreps.com ranks among the top 20 in the Class of 2011.
"I want to let Coach Calipari know I'm coming to Kentucky," Wiltjer said. "I'm excited to be a part of that team."
Wiltjer is a 6-foot-9 forward from Portland who chose UK over Georgia Tech, Gonzaga, Kansas, California, Texas and Wake Forest. He joins Michael Gilchrist (No. 1 at MaxPreps.com), Anthony Davis (No. 5 at MaxpPreps.com) and Marquise Teague (No. 9 at MaxPreps.com) as UK pledges, which almost certainly assures the Wildcats will have the nation's top-ranked recruiting class for the third straight year.
