As basketball recruiting winds down for the 2015 high school class, the experts at ESPN RecruitingNation predicted the future for the four uncommitted top ten prospects. Of those four — Jaylen Brown, Cheick Diallo, Brandon Ingram and Malik Newman — ESPN predicts one, Malik Newman, will end up at Kentucky.

Newman will not take a single official visit before making his decision, but it seems that Kentucky and Mississippi State are the leaders. Newman could go to Lexington and get plenty of minutes, but Mississippi State is his father’s alma mater and new head coach Ben Howland knows how important it is to close the deal. [ESPN]
ESPN predicts Cheick Diallo will follow Slice Rohrrsen and Matt Abdelmassih to St. John’s. UK will also lose out on Ingram and Brown.
One of four? We’ll take it.
