Marvin Bagley III cuts list with Kentucky Wildcats on it

Marvin Bagley III, one the top high school prospects in any class, is now down to six schools.

Bagley announced his final list on Twitter Thursday night, and it includes some familiar blue bloods in the Kentucky Wildcats and Duke Blue Devils.

Bagley is ranked as the top prospect in the Class of 2018 by ESPN, 247 Sports and Rivals.com, so of course UK and Duke are still in the mix for such an elite player.

The Sierra Canyon High School (CA) star still has a ways to go in his recruitment as he won't be enrolled in college for another two years, but it's still good to see John Calipari has the Wildcats firmly in the mix for one of the best prospects in any class right now.

And while it's still very early, Bagley's 247 Sports Crystal Ball has UK as the slight leader:

Bagley just missed nearly all of his sophomore season after starting the school year at Hillcrest Prep in Arizona, but ended up transferring to Sierra Canyon, where he was ruled ineligible last season and will be eligible to play as a junior this coming season.
