The Holmes Bulldogs were crowned as the Kentucky state champs in March and now the teams two studs have been named the best players in the state by a respected recruiting website.
State Tournament MVP, Ricardo Johnson, was ranked No. 1 followed by teammate Elijah Pittman at number two.
Johnson is being looked at by a number of teams including Kentucky, Xavier and Cincinnati. He's received one offer from Bradley.
Pittman is also being looked at by a number of teams including Kentucky and Xavier.
Without a doubt Holmes will be projected to repeat as state champs with the return of Johnson, Pittman, Jeremiah Johnson and Kevon Rice. The last team to win back-to-back Kentucky men's basketball state championships was Louisville Male in 1970 and 1971. Can Holmes break the 35+ year drought?
