With Ashton Hagans’ move into the 2018 class, he now has new rankings from recruiting services like 247 Sports, ESPN and Rivals.
Formerly the No. 1 point guard and the No. 6 player in the class of 2019 on 247 Sports, Hagans didn’t fall far by moving. He’s the No. 12 overall player in the 247 Sports rankings and the No. 2 point guard. Only Vanderbilt Commodores commit Darius Garland is ahead of him at the point guard position.
Meanwhile, Rivals has Hagans one spot lower than 247, putting him at No. 13 on their 2018 rankings list. Despite the move up a class, Hagans is still the No. 1 2018 point guard on Rivals’ rankings.
ESPN isn’t too high on Hangans, as they have him ranked 20th overall and the third-best point guard. They initially had Hagans ranked 17th in the 2019 class, so they’ve not been high on Hagans to begin with.
Hagans’ high rankings are no surprise. He was named Georgia’s Mr. Basketball after 20.1 points, 10.7 assists and 7.7 rebounds last season for Newton High School in Covington, Georgia.
With these updates, Kentucky’s class is still No. 2 behind the Duke Blue Devils, who’re bringing in all three of the top three recruits in the 2018 class. However, UK still five of 247’s top 40 prospects in America.
The Wildcats, with a signing class comprised of Hagans, EJ Montgomery, Keldon Johnson, Immanuel Quickley (all five-stars) and Tyler Herro (four-star), are just .77 points behind Duke for the top class in the country, according to 247.
