  Kentucky is Facing the Toughest Rebuild of the Coach Cal Era ​John Calipari and the Kentucky Wildcats came together to serve as the collective face of what it means to be a one-and-done player in NCAA basketball.  Even with the massive amount of turnover every year, nothing comes close to the challenge Calipari will face this year, as a grand total of one player will be returning from the 2016-17 team.

At last week 's Elite 11 finals, SB Nation's recruiting team asked coaches how quickly each star quarterback recruit could get up to college-game speed. The coaches think Manny Wilkins has a lot more physical growth left in his frame, but I did not get a clear answer on him as a starter in 2014.

Wisconsin had planned to take two quarterbacks in this cycle.

Wolf visited Wisconsin in late November. The Badgers were the second program to offer him, but others followed.

"I'm gonna be honest, before the Wisconsin (visit) it was between South Carolina and Boston College," Wolf told Gannett partner Cincinnatti.com. "I kind of put Wisconsin on the backburner but after the visit, I was blown away and I knew right away."

In the final three games of the regular season and the Bombers' playoff opener against Fairfield, Wolf completed 97 of 152 passes for 847 yards, 11 touchdowns and four interceptions.

BOSTON COLLEGE

The Eagles added their second quarterback commit in the last two weeks with 6-5 pro-style prospect Matt Valecce of Fordham Prep (Bronx, N.Y.).
