University of Kentucky Basketball, Football, and Recruiting news brought to you in the most ridiculous manner possible. makes predictions for 2018 class


It is way too early to be making predictions on where the top high school juniors will attend college but that’s exactly what you can find over at today.

Rivals’ supposed experts took 10 of the top prospects in next year’s class and did their absolute best to forecast those prospects’ recruitment.

Kentucky is the presumed winner (by vote count) for Zion Williamson, Moses Brown and Javonte Smart, while receiving one vote for Marvin Bagley III, the No. 1 overall player.

Romeo Langford, who Calipari visited earlier this week in nearby New Albany, In., was not projected to Kentucky by any of the four voting experts. Louisville picked up three of the four votes for Langford; the other belonging to Indiana.

We’ll have more on the 2018 targets here on KSR tomorrow as we look ahead to AAU season. For now, check out Rivals’ predictions for entertainment purposes only.

    I’m just not into the 2018 class…not sure why…it seems weaker than the last couple to me. I hope we have several of this class that stay and provide a nice base for us.

    Another class where the best recruiter in the world can’t land the top player.

      Maybe the “best recruiter in the world” knows more than those ranking these players. After all, I think even you would agree towns>okafor.

      Stan has posted innumerable low-information, trolling comments on several stories. Where is UKBiboard when you need him?

    Wait, I thought Pitino doesn’t recruit one-and-dones. I guess that means these “experts” don’t think Langford is good enough lol.

      If Langford goes to Louisville, then he’s an idiot. U of L is where 5*’s careers go to die.

    I hope the kid goes to UofSmell. It’ll be great to not see him on TV when the sanctions come.
