Rivals experts make early predictions for 2018

We will soon flood you with info, interviews and highlights from the Nike Peach Jam and the adidas Gauntlet Finale, both showcasing several UK targets down in South Carolina this week; but first, why don’t we check out the happening over at Rivals.com, where the so-called experts attempted to predict the future.

The recruiting website’s college basketball team of Eric Bossi, Corey Evans, Dan McDonald and Krysten Peek gave their predictions for many of the elite prospects Kentucky is pursuing in the 2018 class. According to the four of them, Kentucky is in good standing with Marvin Bagley, Zion Williamson, Moses Brown, Louis King and Immanuel Quickley, all of whom had Kentucky with the most votes in Rivals’ picks. All four experts picked Kentucky for Quickley; Williamson had three Kentucky picks; and the group of Bagley, Brown and King each had two Kentucky picks of the four opinions.

Unfortunately, Romeo Langford and Cameron Reddish, two of Calipari’s U19 guys, did not get any Kentucky love in their predictions, while Bol Bol got one Kentucky vote.

      Bagley and Zion are both better than Langford. I’d be happy to land 1 of the 2. If we get both it’ll be ridiculous. Immanuel sounds like a lock at this point. We will have the top class again.
