Kentucky offers five-star point guard Ashton Hagans

Ashton Hagans has his scholarship offer from Kentucky.

The five-star prospect, ranked as the No. 1 point guard in the Class of 2019, has been open about wanting an offer from Kentucky over the past few weeks. On Thursday, Hagans got his wish as John Calipari extended the offer, per multiple reports.

So what now?

Maybe, just maybe, Hagans will reclassify and join Kentucky’s guard-heavy 2018 class. Hagans has been considering a reclassification that would land him in college basketball next season, but he has not yet made that official. It’s unclear if Calipari gave the offer with intentions of adding him next year or immediately, but the reclassification is in play, as are several other schools that want him right away.

Louisville extended an offer yesterday, and he’s also hearing from new Georgia head coach Tom Crean, who hopes to get Hagans back on the Georgia train. Hagans committed to Georgia back in December, but quickly reopened his recruitment two months later.

For Kentucky, if Hagans were to accept and reclassify, it would make for a very crowded backcourt next season. But if the No. 1 point guard wants to join your program, you have to take him. Immanuel Quickley and Quade Green will just have to fight a little harder for PG minutes next season.

It’ll be interesting to see how this all plays out. All we know for now is that UK is major contender for Hagans, whenever he decides to go to college.

      There’s been no rumors of that. Ksr briefly mentioned it as a small chance. That’s not a rumor lol

      Where have the rumors been? Other than briefly being mentioned in a KSR article as an outside option no one thinks will happen. Like Arnold said in Kindergarten Cop…it’s not a rumor.

      If you only listen to this site, as most of you do, you’d believe Quade/Quickley/Hagans will compete for PG, baker and herro are etched in stone as the guard sharp shooters, and Knox may come back and battle KJ for the SF spot, not to mention Vando and PJ will battle for the 4, and SKJ, Richards and EJ Montgomery will split the 5. Notice I didn’t mention Shai or Hami because it’s presumed they’re gone.
      Calipari said we may add 2 more to this class.

      Something has to give, there’s only one ball, and I’m hearing Quade is considering going to a school where he’s a PG, not playing behind 2 guys, and “playing on the perimeter and shooting threes”

      Where did you see that report about Green? I know quite a bit of UK folk, and have never heard anything resembling that…

      I don’t think someone talking out of their ass rises to the level of “rumor” in credibility. LOL!

      There aren’t any rumors about Quade transferring. Crickets posts crap like that to get attention. He can’t be more than 18.

    He and Quickley could play like Wall and Bledsoe. Or One could come off the bench.I just hope EJ comes. Sounds like one of the current players told Cal he is going to have an available scholarship next year.

    I believe EJ is overrated.

    Would like EJ or Wiseman to come and reclassify, or 2018-19 will be the season of the guards just like 2017-18 was the season of the forwards. Or maybe Cal is shifting to more of a Jay Wright-type positionless philosophy as the luxury of size and versatility combined seems to be going to the two big research triangle schools.

    He’s not the #3 PG, not #1. Just saying…

      I guess he must be #2. Or #4 or lower. If you ain’t first you’re last!

    If he reclassifies to c/o 2018 and no one transfers, we will see a lot of ‘03 Villanova 3 guard, 4 guard for emergencies lineup. I like it and it tailors Cals offense. Get up and down in transition, agressive D, ball handlers and shooters who can distribute. For D though for the 4 guard, you might have to go to a zone or matchup zone, or pack line d
