The Kentucky Wildcats have already signed six players for the 2020 class and have a good hold on the No. 1 ranked recruiting class.

However, Corey Evans of discussed in his Twitter Tuesday Mailbag that he expects Kentucky to add to the class.

He was asked who he sees as the most likely addition to the class.

“No one stands out, but I would be highly, highly surprised if Kentucky does not strike again in the 2020 class. Who that might be? That’s not quite clear yet.”

Cliff Omoruyi and Greg Brown have been two of the names that has been discussed a lot when it comes to Kentucky, but Evans doesn’t seem to believe it is likely either ends up in Lexington.

The player that Evans seems to believe has the best chance of joining the 2020 class is center, Kai Sotto.

“Keep an eye on Kai Sotto, as the Wildcats might be out in front for him; Auburn, DePaul, Georgia Tech and USC are also heavily involved.”

Sotto unofficially visited Kentucky back on December 9th and it looks like the Cats are in a good position to potentially land the 7-1 star.
