Quickies: Ashton Hagans Edition

Hagans reclassifies and more in today’s quickies.

Ashton Hagans has officially made the 2018-19 Kentucky team loaded. The announcement of his reclassification yesterday put UK in incredibly good shape from a roster standpoint.

Their backcourt will now consist of:

  • Former five-star recruit Quade Green
  • Five-star recruit Immanuel Quickley
  • Five-star recruit Ashton Hagans
  • Former four-star recruit Jemarl Baker
  • Four-star recruit Tyler Herro

The depth that this team has is absurd? Who do you start? Who do you bench? How do you even figure it out?

Hagans’ reclassification puts Calipari right back in that top-two recruiting discussion for 2018.
