On Thursday evening, Jaden Hardy announced his Top-12 schools list via Twitter. To no one’s surprise, the Kentucky Wildcats made the cut. Other schools included were Arizona, Arizona State, Georgetown, Georgia, Illinois, Kansas, Memphis, Michigan, Oregon, Texas Tech and UCLA.
Per 247Sports, the 6’4 combo guard ranks as the No. 6 overall prospect in the 2021 class and is the No. combo guard. He’s also the top-overall recruit in the state of Nevada, which only elevates his stock out west.
For now, 247Sports Lead Expert Josh Gershon is predicting 100% in favor of Kentucky. After a unique year that ended early due to the COVID-19 pandemic, ‘twas unclear of how many players Kentucky would lose to the NBA Draft before the 2020 NCAA season. Sure enough, all but one player who saw playing time last season has declared.
Landing Hardy would provide premium comfort for the fall of 2021, especially if we see a high amount of turnover next season, too.
No surprise here that Kentucky made this list for 2021 five-star Jaden Hardy. I look for them to be in the middle of this one until the very end. @KentuckyRivals @RowlandRIVALS @TravGraf_Rivals @JDrumUK pic.twitter.com/YAee22tz1K— David Sisk (@CoachDavidSisk) April 17, 2020
