Pope has also attracted the greatest number of transfers nationwide.

Mark Pope had to start from scratch when he took over as head coach of the Kentucky Wildcats, effectively starting from scratch with no players on the roster.

But with so few high school players left, Pope had to assemble his first Lexington roster through the transfer site.

As they have brought in nine transfers for the 2024–25 season, Pope has actually brought in the most this offseason.

After Jaxson Robinson joined the team, 247 Sports recently announced their transfer portal class rankings, placing the Wildcats at No. 4 overall.

Due to the NBA Draft withdrawal deadline, Kentucky acquired another significant addition to its roster when former BYU wing Jaxson Robinson decided to join head coach Mark Pope at the University of Kentucky for the 2024–25 campaign. As it assembles a team, Kentucky currently has nine incoming transfers, all but one of whom are rated as four-stars. The Wildcats had more four-star transfers this cycle than any other college basketball program. The biggest addition to the haul is 6-foot-11, 245-pound former McDonald’s All-American Brandon Garrison, who showed promise as a true freshman at Oklahoma State the previous season. The Wildcats have added two players ranked in the top 50 transfers: Lamont Butler Jr., a former point guard for San Diego State, and Otega Oweh, a former Oklahoma wing. The beginning of Lexington’s new era is hopeful.

The other three teams that rank higher than the Cats are Arkansas and John Calipari at No. 1, Indiana at No. 2 and Rick Pitino’s St. John’s at No. 3.
