Kentucky Basketball Recruiting: Ashton Hagans watched by UK coaches

Kentucky could have its next target in the 2019 class.


Kentucky is on the recruiting trail for 2019, as the Wildcats are watching 2019 five-star point guard Ashton Hagans, according to Evan Daniels.

Hagans is the No. 10 player in the class of 2017 according to 247 Sports. He’s the No. 2 point guard and the No. 1 player in the state of Georgia.

Hagans stands 6-3, 185 lbs. He’s playing high school ball at Newton High School in Covington, Georgia.

Hagans already has a ton of interest from colleges around the nation. He has 32 offers, including offers from Auburn, Kansas, North Carolina and Alabama. Kentucky has not yet offered, but the interest is clearly there. Kentucky assistant coach Joel Justus visited Hagans on Set. 27.

Hagans could be the next 2019 recruit to receive a Kentucky offer, which would make him the eighth player in his class with a UK offer, joining Vernon Carey, James Wiseman, Scottie Lewis, Bryan Antoine, Tyrese Maxey, D.J. Jeffries and Keion Brooks, all five-star prospects.
