Kentucky Finishes No. 1 in 2020 247 Composite Recruiting Rankings

The Kentucky Wildcats have the No. 1 recruiting class in America, again.

Tuesday afternoon 247 Sports unveiled their final edition of the 2020 basketball recruiting rankings. For the seventh time in 12 years, John Calipari’s Wildcats finished first. This is Kentucky’s first top-ranked class in the 247 system since 2015.

Two Wildcats make 247’s top ten, B.J. Boston at No. 4 and Terrence Clarke at No. 7 overall. Boston is Calipari’s highest-ranked recruit since Skal Labissiere. It’s also Calipari’s first top ten tandem since Bam Adebayo and De’Aaron Fox in 2016.

Unlike the Rivals rankings released Monday, there are only five signees inside the top 50 in 247’s Composite Rankings. Cam’Ron Fletcher comes in at No. 59.

    Cam’Ron Fletcher should be 5-star. Watch his mixtape if you wanna get excited about next year.

      Mixtapes are highlight reels. All I saw were dunks. He’s not going to be tall enough to play at the 4 and college wings need to be able to shoot. He’s got high level athleticism but he doesn’t get me excited Boston & Clarke do.

    I like a point guard that can shoot and Askew is heady enough to win.

    As a old school man this ratings stuff doesn’t guarantee a championship banner will be hanging. But I do like what we got coming Cal will have them ready by March
