An updated Top247 ranking from 247 Sports features all three of the Kentucky Wildcats’ 2018 signees in the top 35.

Immanuel Quickley, a five-star point guard from John Carroll High School in Maryland, is at the top of Cats’ list (unsurprisingly). Quickley is No. 14 on the list, and No. 3 among point guards.

Highly-skilled wing Keldon Johnson from Oak Hill Academy in Virginia is next. He’s just one spot away at No. 15, and he’s No. 4 at the small forward spot.

Last is Tyler Herro, a four-star point guard from Whitnall High School in Wisconsin. Herro, who seems to drop 30+ every night, is No. 35 on the list and No. 6 among shooting guards.

Kentucky still has a chance to land forward Zion Williamson, the No. 3 recruit on the list, and center Moses Brown, the No. 27 recruit on the list.

The Cats currently have the No. 4 class in the nation. If they land those two, they’re sure to leapfrog and keep John Calipari’s streak of top-two classes alive.
