Kentucky Wildcats' now lead De'Aaron Fox Crystal Ball Predictions at 100%

The Kentucky Wildcats could be closing in on another elite recruiting class, and we may begin seeing more movement with it in the coming weeks.

A big reason why is Big Blue Madness takes place this week, and several big-time prospects from the 2016 class will be in attendance. This will also be the final official visit for five-star point guard De'Aaron Fox after he cut the Arizona Wildcats from his list. Though Fox says the LSU Tigers and Louisville Cardinals are still options, it's believed he's only considering the Kansas Jayhawks and UK now with the Cats being the favorites.

In fact, the national belief is UK leads in his recruitment by a large margin, so much so that Fox's 24/7 Sports Crystal Ball has the Cats leading the way with 100% of the votes.

What's even more intriguing about that is Matt Shiver, who covers Kansas for The Shiver, just changed his pick from KU to UK AFTER Fox just completed his official with Kansas over the weekend.

It also comes with Fox set to visit for Big Blue Madness this week and potentially decide soon thereafter where he'll be playing his likely one season of college basketball. John Calipari has a pretty good track record with one-and-done point guards.
