Wednesday, 247 sports released their final recruiting rankings for the class of 2020.
In the final player rankings, some UK prospects made a jump while others took a dip. Here’s a look at where each of the six signed Cats landed.
5-star SG, B.J. Boston: 5 (+11)
Brandon ‘B.J.’ Boston soared in the final rankings going from the nation’s 16th ranked player to the fifth-best. He is the first top-five prospect UK has signed since they inked Skal Labissiere (2) in 2015.
5-star SG, Terrance Clarke: 9 (-5)
Terrance Clarke dropped from his number four spot to the ninth-ranked prospect in the nation but mostly because of the play of some of the prospects who moved ahead of him. Clarke and Boston are expected to form one of the nation’s top backcourt duos next season. UK is the only team to sign multiple top 10 recruits.
4-star C, Isaiah Jackson: 31 (+2)
6-foot-9 Isaiah Jackson, whose listed as a center, checks in at No. 31 in the updated rankings. He jumped two spots in the final rankings and is considered by many to be underrated. Jackson could potentially win UK’s starting center job if Wake Forest transfer Olivier Sarr is forced to sit out a year.
4-star PG, Devin Askew: 34 (-6)
Point guard Devin Askew not only took a small dip in the rankings but is now ranked as a four-star prospect. This could be because Askew is simply one of the youngest players in the class as he reclassified to come to college a year early. He will compete with graduate transfer Davion Mintz for the starting job.
4-star PF, Lance Ware: 40 (-4)
Lance Ware also took a slight dip in the rankings falling to No. 4. The New Jersey native will look to compete for the starting power forward job with sophomore Keion Brooks
4-star SF, Cam’Ron Fletcher: 73 (-26)
Cam’Ron Fletcher took a nosedive in the final rankings losing his spot in the top 50 and falling all the way to No. 73. He will look to prove the ‘experts’ wrong when he arrives on campus.
