The 2018 recruiting cycle is almost complete.

With the spring signing period here, almost all of the top high school recruits have committed and signed their national letters of intent. All of the big high school all-star games have wrapped up, so the final Class of 2018 recruit rankings are being released this week

The lastest is 247 Sports, who just unveiled their final 2018 recruit rankings. All of the Kentucky Wildcats’ 2018 commitments came in fairly high, including their newest commitment in E.J. Montgomery.

UK’s highest Class of 2018 pledge is Montgomery, who now checks in at No. 6. Amazingly, Montgomery is now one spot ahead of Zion Williamson, who was once poised to be the prize of UK’s 2018 class before he ultimately picked Duke.

Keldon Johnson dropped one spot to the No. 16 ranking.

Immanuel Quickley checked in at No. 17, a drop of three spots from his previous ranking.

Tyler Herro checked in at No. 36, which was actually a one-spot increase from his previous ranking.

As for former UK recruits, RJ Barrett retained the top spot, while Cameron Reddish checked in at No. 3, so Duke will have two top-three recruits for next season. Bol Bol came in at No. 4.
