5* Dwayne Bacon is in the house.

Leonard Hamilton has just landed a top 10 recruiting class. An hour after consensus top 50 player Malik Beasley committed to coach Hamilton, 5* Dwayne Bacon decided to do the same. Those two join Terance Mann in what will be perhaps the best recruiting class of Leonard Hamilton's tenure.

Bacon, in case you didn't know, is really really good at basketball. He's considered one of the top scorers in the country, and has the type of impact game reminiscent of guys like P.J. Hairston. He can shoot. He can penetrate. He can put you on a poster. He's 6-6 and is worthy of Ham's greatest compliment for a player - he's a problem - as in the other coaches problem.
