Kentucky Basketball: Recruiting Update by Evan Daniels (VIDEO)

De'Aaron Fox still looks like the likeliest player to join UK's 2016 class, but who else will be part of it?

Who will the Kentucky Wildcats get to round out the 2016 class?

As of now, there's only about 20-25 top-100 prospects left for next year, depending on which recruiting service you're looking at. However, many of the top 15-20 guys are still on the board and have some level of interest from John Calipari and UK. Among them are guard Rawle Alkins, forward Bam Adebayo, forward Harry Giles, forward Jarrett Lee, guard Malik Monk and guard De'Aaron Fox, all of whom are five-star prospects.

Scout.com recruiting expert Evan Daniels talked with the guys at cn2 about which of those guys the Cats are in good position with, most notably Fox, who Daniels said, "Kentucky is in great shape with" as his recruitment nears its end. As for Giles, who is set to announce No.v 14, Daniels still thinks Duke is the leader, but that UK made up ground during his visit during Big Blue Madness.

Here is the video:

Also, Calipari met up with Fox today as he looks to seal the deal with the five-star point guard.
