The 2018 recruiting cycle is nearing its end.

With the spring signing period now here, most of the top high school recruits have committed and signed their national letters of intent. All of the major high school all-star games have also wrapped up, so in the coming weeks, the final Class of 2018 recruit rankings will be released.

Up first is, who just unveiled their final Rivals 150 ranking. As you can imagine, all of the Kentucky Wildcats’ 2018 commitments made this ranking, though some lower than expected.

Tyler Herro checked in at No. 34, which was actually a one-spot increase from his previous ranking.

Immanuel Quickley was once a top-10 prospect, but this ranking has him checking in at No. 20, a drop of five spots from his previous ranking.

Keldon Johnson rose one spot to the No. 13 ranking.

UK’s highest Class of 2018 pledge is E.J. Montgomery, who checks in at No. 10.

As for former UK recruits, RJ Barrett retained the top spot, but Zion Williamson fell to No. 5 in this ranking. Cameron Reddish checked in at No. 3, so Duke will have three top-five recruits for next season, but they won’t be the top three recruits like it originally looked like would happen.

1 R.J. Barrett

3 Cameron Reddish

5 Zion Williamson
