What did we learn about future Cat Ashton Hagans in this weekend’s Adidas Gauntlet in Atlanta? That he’s a pass-first point guard. All of the recruiting experts that watched Hagans praised his passing, including Evan Daniels:
Love the make up of Kentucky pledge Ashton Hagans. Competes on both ends. Wants to defend. Also a rare elite point guard that's pass first. Creative with impressive vision.

“To be honest, that was the offer I had been waiting on,” Hagans told The Daily Tribune News. “It’s my dream school, and I know coach Cal and his staff can get me to where I’m trying to go and reach my goals. That’s why I’m going to Kentucky is I’m trying to take my game to the next step.”
While Hagans was dishing out assists in Atlanta, fellow five-star 2019 guard Tyrese Maxey was doing the same at the EYBL in Indianapolis. ICYMI, Maxey told reporters that he and Hagans plan to be “the duo” at Kentucky:
Bring it on.
