They say recruiting is fluid, and the past week has proven just that for the Kentucky Wildcats basketball and football programs.
To start, Kentucky football landed two big time recruits last week. Four-star defensive back Avery Stuart was the first one. The 6-2 corner from Alabama committed on Wednesday over Florida State, Arkansas and others.
Now on to basketball.
On Friday, Travis Branham of 247 Sports redacted his crystal ball pick for DJ Wagner to Louisville, stating that the race with Kentucky has now become a toss up, which is good news for Kentucky fans.
Travis Graf of Rivals took the leap and switched his futurecast from the Cardinals to Kentucky and Jamie Shaw of On3 is also on the Kentucky Wildcats train as of right now and believes that Wildcats have a whopping “95% chance” to land Wagner.

And closing with Justin Edwards, Jack Pilgrim of KSR says that the recruitment of Edwards is a two-horse race between Kentucky and Tennessee, with Kentucky closing the gap on the Vols, making this recruitment 50/50.
Edwards has said that he would like to make an announcement during Peach Jam in the coming weeks.
