Sacha Killeya-Jones sees big bump in updated rankings

Three of the four main recruiting services updated their 2016 rankings today and Kentucky’s lone commitment in the class, Sacha Killeya-Jones, saw a huge bump across the board.

First, in the new Top247, Killeya-Jones moved up from No. 39 to No. 16 in the update. Up at the top, Harry Giles dropped from first to third, behind Josh Jackson and De’Aaron Fox, respectively.

Over at ESPN Recruiting, Killeya-Jones jumped from No. 57 to No. 31. Harry Giles, Jayson Tatum and Josh Jackson are the top three.

And in the updated Scout.com rankings, Killeya-Jones climbed from No. 48 to No. 29 overall. Giles is your top player there, too.

Hashtag Kentucky effect.

    I hope it’s NOT the “Kentucky effect” that’s moving Jones up. We want him to be moving up because he’s out there proving he’s one of the top 20 or 30 players.

      Agreed. Where a kid commits should have zero effect on their rankings.

      Charles Mathews sound familiar? I don’t think the KY effect applies here… Mathews dropped like a brick last year.

      It’s a parody/satire account. Pretty funny too.

      And everyone knows not to go by Rivals. Their ranking system is whack. Thanks for calling!
