As expected, Ashton Hagans has graduated and will officially reclassify to the class of 2018.
This afternoon, the five-star Kentucky commitment released two photos on Twitter in his cap and gown holding up his diploma, meaning he has finished up all academic requirements to make the jump.

Hagans also retweeted a tweet that said he “did what was required to graduate early and join (the BBN) for the 2018-19 season.”
Once he made up his mind to do it, he did it. Congrats to @Newton_High’s to @H23Ash who did what was required to graduate early and join #BBN Nation for the 2018-19 season! It’s been a pleasure covering your prep career! pic.twitter.com/mgkncR6a1b

Game Elite director (Hagans’ AAU program) Chris Williams told KSR last week that the future Wildcat had one class to finish, and then he would “immediately go to Lexington.”
“(The class) will be done in a week or two,” Williams said. “(Then) he will immediately go to Lexington.”
And it looks like that time has officially come.
