Kentucky boasts six top-50 prospects in final Rivals rankings

Kentucky will officially finish with six top-50 prospects – including two top-ten talents – in the final Rivals recruiting rankings.

In their latest 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 to round out Kentucky’s five-star signees. 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.”

From there, both Devin Askew and Lance Ware dropped to high four-stars, with the former coming in at No. 31 overall and the latter coming in at No. 34. Askew fell five spots to become the second-highest ranked four-star in the class, while Ware fell two spots to become the fifth-highest ranked four-star.

To close out the class, Cam’Ron Fletcher dropped four spots to No. 46 overall, firmly placing him in four-star status.

    Personally, I don’t care about their ratings. I love this incoming class.

    Great class for the Cats! Excited to see this group play.

    Memphis must have put in some work on this class. They have so many top commits (who stayed comitted) on this list too 😉

    I too am excited about this class. I hope Coach isn’t done just yet though. Hopefully there is still one more elite star wanting to join this team and compete for a NC!

    desertCard – I’m 42 years old. Can you guess the program whose last national championship came when I was 7 and more interested in watching Alf than college basketball?
