Kidd-Gilchrist will be the next in a long line of superstars under John Calipari's tutelage. He may be the most complete player in the country from day one. He is a good (but not great) shooter, an above average athlete, an adept passer, and a very good defender.
The biggest obstacle in Gilly's ascent to super-stardom will be the Wildcats' overwhelming depth. Returning starter Terrence Jones and fellow frosh Anthony Davis will compete with Gilchrist for minutes at the three and four spots. All three are incredibly versatile and are sure-fire lottery picks when they decide to declare, so the minutes Gilchrist gets will be earned not handed out. He projects to be an elite small forward at the NBA level in the Scottie Pippen mold.
