Scout released its updated Top 100 for the class of 2018, and there are Kentucky recruits all through the ranks, as expected.
The list is topped by Marvin Bagley at No. 1, a five-star power forward from California. The athletic big man is considering Arizona, Duke, Kansas, Kentucky, UCLA and USC.
Bol Bol, Manute Bol’s son, is the No. 2 player on the list. He’s 7’2” and shoots over 48% from three-point range. He’s being recruited hard by Kentucky, UCLA, Arizona and Kansas.
The No. 3 player on the list is also a Kentucky recruit: Zion Williamson. Williamson, who was just on the cover of Slam Magazine, has interest from just about everyone due to his insane athletic ability at his size. He’s being recruited hard by North Carolina, Duke, Kentucky, Clemson, South Carolina, Kansas and many others.
The Cats are serious contenders for several other recruits in the top 20, including Cameron Reddish (4), Romeo Langford (5), Naz Reid (9), Immanuel Quickley (10), Louis King (12) and JaVonte Smart (17), all five-star recruits in the class of ‘18.
Quickley looks like UK’s top point guard target for next year, and don’t be surprised if he makes a decision sooner rather than later. Quickley will join Langford, Reddish, Bol and King as recruits attending the Team USA U19 tryout, so John Calipari could be coaching several of these guys this summer.
