Ashton Hagans just got to Lexington today, but the recruiting services have already begun readjusting the official class of 2018 rankings.
247 Sports released their final list, and Hagans came in as the No. 2 point guard in the nation and No. 12 overall. The only point guard ahead? Vanderbilt’s Darius Garland.
EJ Montgomery leads the Cats at No. 6 overall, followed by Hagans at No. 12, Keldon Johnson at No. 18, Immanuel Quickley at No. 19, and Tyler Herro at No. 38.
Unfortunately for Kentucky, they sit just shy of Duke for the No. 1 spot in the team rankings, with the Blue Devils leading the Cats 71.06 to 70.29. The average player rating for each team comes in at 99.63 for Duke and 99.37 for Kentucky.
If star transfer Reid Travis joins, however, he wouldn’t count toward the final team rankings, but there’s no doubt Kentucky would surpass Duke in overall talent.
On that note, we got to see the newest Wildcat show off his new haircut next to his father this afternoon at the Joe Craft Center.
And soon thereafter, Hagans was introduced as a Wildcat for the first time at camp this afternoon:
