Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - SPORTS -

LEX­ING­TON, KY. >> Ken­tucky has signed a four-player class that’s again con­sid­ered among the na­tion’s best.

Wild­cats coach John Cali­pari an­nounced the sign­ings of guards Shai Gil­geous-Alexan­der and Quade Green, cen­ter Nick Richards and for­ward P.J. Wash­ing­ton. All are con­sen­sus four- or five-star prospects and Cali­pari said in a re­lease Sun­day that “we’re not done yet.”

Gil­geous-Alexan­der, 6-foot-5, helped Canada’s U18 team claim the sil­ver medal at last sum­mer’s FIBA Amer­i­cas cham­pi­onship. The 6-1 Green av­er­aged 18.7 points and 4.2 re­bounds per game last sea­son and helped the U.S. team win the gold medal at that tour­na­ment.

The 6-11 Richards comes from the Pa­trick School in New Jersey, which pro­duced for­mer Ken­tucky stand­out and 2012 NBA No. 2 over­all draft choice Michael Kidd-Gilchrist. Wash­ing­ton, 6-8, is rated 17th or higher by sev­eral recruiting ser­vices.
