Master recruiter John Calipari continues to bring more of the nation’s best prospects to Lexington, Ky., landing two five-star prospect in Kentucky’s class of 2015 on Wednesday.

Forward Skal Labissiere and point guard Isaiah Briscoe are the latest five-star players to sign with the Wildcats. Both are ranked among the top 10 overall senior recruits in the country.

There are concerns, though, that the 6-foot-10 Labissiere might bypass college, spend a year overseas and then enter the 2016 NBA Draft. He chose the Wildcats over Baylor, Georgetown, Memphis, North Carolina and Tennessee.

Briscoe is ranked as the best point guard prospect in the nation this year. He picked Kentucky over St. John’s and Connecticut.

Shooting guard Charles Matthews already is a member of the class, and Calipari is not done pursuing talent. Also on his radar are five-star talents Jaylen Brown, Malik Newman, Carton Bragg and Antonio Blakeney.

According to 247 Sports, Kentucky has the No. 2 ranked recruiting class behind Arizona.
