Lonnie Walker top 5 includes Kentucky Wildcats

Lonnie Walker has announced his top five, and of course, the Kentucky Wildcats made the cut.

Walker announced his new list Thursday evening, which also included the Villanova Wildcats and Syracuse Orange, who likely will be UK's biggest competition in this recruitment.

Walker is a 6-5 shooting guard that currently plays for Reading High School in Reading, Pennsylvania. He currently ranks as the fourth -best two guard in the 2017 recruiting class and the top player in the state of Pennsylvania, according to ESPN.

As of now, I expect Walker to pick the Wildcats. The only question is, will it be the home-state Wildcats of Villanova, or will John Calipari's Wildcats land this big-time guard?

Walker has previously said he plans to make his college decision in the early signing period this November. With Walker now having his top five set, we should soon see him announce his five official visit dates.

Be sure to read Jeremy's scouting report on Walker and what he could bring to UK.
