Yet another sign that the plan is still for Ashton Hagans to join UK for this upcoming season.
E.J. Montgomery posted this to his Instagram story tagging 2018 commits Immanuel Quickley, Tyler Herro, Keldon Johnson and @_.shifteam is none other than Ashton Hagans.
Hagans remains in the class of 2019 as of now and is still competing on the adidas Gauntlet AAU circuit. Kentucky is planning for all current 2018 commits to enroll at Kentucky in early June, but it appears unlikely Hagans will be finished with his classes by that time. It’s more likely Hagans joins the mix for the second summer session and worst case scenario is the fall.
Kentucky just announced the addition of E.J. Montgomery today and it will likely be a couple months before Hagans is announced as joining the fold, but it still appears Hagans will join Quickley, Herro, Quade Green, Jemarl Baker and Brad Calipari in the backcourt season.
Hagans, an elite defender and passer, will be surrounded with great shooters. That should be fun.
UPDATE: Tyler Herro also tagged Hagans in a tweet with other 2018 commitments. It’s never a bad thing for these guys to bond before arriving on campus.
