Kentucky Basketball Recruiting: Ashton Hagans picks Georgia Bulldogs: UK had shown interest

One of the top players in 2019 comes off the board.

One of the top players in 2019 has made his decision.

On Thursday night, five-star point guard Ashton Hagans made a surprise commitment to the Georgia Bulldogs over the Florida State Seminoles.

UK had been in the mix for Hagans, who already has 32 offers, including Kansas, North Carolina, Auburn and Alabama. But he never scored a scholarship offer from John Calipari.

Hagans had been watched multiple times this fall by UK coaches. Had he waited, it’s possible that an offer would have come, but Hagans was ready to decide now, and the Bulldogs were the benefactor.

Hagans, who measures in at 6-4 and 185 pounds, put up 14.2 points, 5.4 boards and 8.3 assists per game in the Adidas Gauntlet this past summer. He’s ranked 11th nationally by 247 Sports Composite, which measures all of the major recruiting rankings.
