John Wall, Eric Bledsoe, Patrick Patterson and Darius Miller
The nation's top recruiting class, led by Wall, Bledsoe and DeMarcus Cousins, helped jumpstart the stagnant Kentucky program. Joined by upperclassmen Patterson and Miller, the freshmen led Kentucky to an SEC title, a No. 1 seed in the NCAA tournament and the Elite Eight. But the Wildcats bowed out in the East Regional with a 73-66 loss to West Virginia.
