It appears Marvin Bagley is seriously considering reclassifying to the Class of 2017 and playing college basketball next season.
Evan Daniels of Scout.com reported Bagley has filed the paperwork to the NCAA Clearinghouse to “potentially reclassify,” per sources. Now that doesn’t necessarily mean he will reclassify, but it’s the first major step in the process to do so.
Ranked No. 1 overall in the 2018 class, Bagley is unlikely to pick Kentucky now or next year, whenever he comes out of high school. He recently took visits to Duke and USC, and has plans to check out Arizona and UCLA.
Some have said Bagley would’ve been the No. 1 overall pick in this summer’s draft over Markelle Fultz. He’s that good.
