BJ Boston, Terrence Clarke finish in top ten of Rivals rankings

Kentucky will finish with three five-star prospects – including two top-ten talents – in the final Rivals recruiting rankings.

In their newest update released today, B.J. Boston came in at No. 4 overall, followed by Terrence Clarke at No. 7, and Isaiah Jackson at No. 26. Boston’s finish gives John Calipari his first top-five signee since Skal Labissiere finished No. 1 in the 2015 recruiting rankings.

“After moving from Georgia to California for his senior season, B.J. Boston took his game to another level,” Rivals said of Boston’s finish as a top-five prospect. “He has a gorgeous jump shot, tremendous size for a two-guard and can create for himself with ease.”

“A natural scorer who is aggressive in hunting jump shots, Terrence Clarke is a big two-guard with some pop in his legs,” Rivals continued on Kentucky’s other top-ten signee. “He gets to his spots, is never shy about letting it fly and can catch opponents with above-the-rim finishes.”

“Isaiah Jackson is just starting to scratch the surface of what he could be as a player. He’s arguably the best shot-blocker in the class, is a highlight finisher and took big steps on the offensive end as a senior.”

Devin Askew and Lance Ware dropped to high four-stars, while Cam’Ron Fletcher remains as a four-star. Currently, Askew sits at No. 31, followed by Ware at No. 34 and Fletcher at No. 46, with all three potentially seeing changes when the complete rankings are released on Tuesday.

    Of course Askew and Ware dropped otherwise the media darling, Dook U, coached by the real media darling, Shitshevski would have fallen behind UK in the number of 5 stars signed.

    Kansas with only 1 signee and UL with none. No Arizona either. Looming sanctions playing a role. UT and ASU clearly benefiting. No question ASU’s coach and former Duke floor slapper Bobby Hurley will become Coach K’s successor.

      They really like Capel too Delray. I think K is waiting to make sure that one of Capel, Hurly, or Wojo is truly ready to take over. He’d be ticked off if a non assistant landed the job, so it seems like he’s making sure that doesn’t happen.
