UK Recruiting: Ashton Hagans reclassifies into 2018 class

One of the top players in 2019 moves up a class.


Ashton Hagans is now only considering a reclassification into the Class of 2018, but for now, the move is not final, according to his father.

With all the twists and turns we’ve seen in this recruitment already, perhaps we’re seeing why John Calipari hasn’t offered him a scholarship yet.

The recruitment of Ashton Hagans just took an interesting turn.

Not long after the five-star point guard decommitted from the Georgia Bulldogs, it was revealed that Hagans is reclassifying into the 2018 class, according to recruiting guru Evan Daniels.

That’s huge news, as one of the top guards in the 2019 class is now a 2018 recruit. It’s unclear how high he’ll be in 2018 after being ranked as high as No. 8 overall in 2019. He’s ranked 11th nationally by 247 Sports Composite, which measures all of the major recruiting rankings.

Hagans had been watched multiple times this fall by UK coaches. There’s been no scholarship offer extended by John Calipari just yet, and it’s unclear if UK even wants him as a 2018 recruit.

Hagans, who measures in at 6-4 and 185 pounds, put up 14.2 points, 5.4 boards and 8.3 assists per game in the Adidas Gauntlet this past summer. He already has 32 offers, including Kansas, North Carolina, Baylor, Texas A&M, NC State, Auburn and Alabama.

With Hagans now in the 2018 class, Tyrese Maxey is now the top-ranked point guard in 2019. He actually holds an offer from UK, so it’s good to see he’s now a top-ranked prospect at his position.

Unless something crazy happens with UK’s current roster and their 2018 class, it’s hard to see Hagans ending up in Lexington.
