In this week’s “Three-Point-Play,” national basketball recruiting analyst Eric Bossi makes a prediction for which team will hold the crown for best recruiting class in 2020.
Spoiler: He picked Kentucky.
“Duke, North Carolina and some others also appear to be on the verge of big classes but if I had to pick a favorite today to eventually finish with 2020’s top class, I’m going with Kentucky,” Bossi wrote in his latest contribution to Rivals.com.
He goes on to note that Kentucky is in “prime position” to compete for other bluechip prospects on the wing, in addition to some big man targets. Point guard is the biggest question, he says. Read the entire story here.
If the prediction holds true and John Calipari lands the No. 1 class, it will be Kentucky’s first time at the top of the charts since 2016; that top-ranked group included three top-10 players in De’Aaron Fox (6), Bam Adebayo (7) and Malik Monk (10). It was Kentucky’s seventh No. 1 class in Calipari’s eight years on the job, but the last three classes all fell to second in the rankings.
It’s time to get back to the top and things are off to a perfect start with the very early commitment from BJ Boston.
