This is the biggest week of the year in basketball recruiting, and in turn, Rivals just released a new ranking of the 2018 prospects. Where do Kentucky’s targets stand? I’m glad you asked.

Here’s where a lot of those players will be this week:

Nike Peach Jam (EYBL)

  • Marvin Bagley
  • Bol Bol
  • Cameron Reddish
  • Simi Shittu
  • Louis King
  • Keldon Johnson
  • R.J. Barrett (2019)

adidas Gauntlet finale

  • Zion Williamson
  • Romeo Langford
  • Immanuel Quickley
  • Quentin Grimes
  • David McCormack

In his breakdown of the rankings, Rivals analyst Eric Bossi says that while Bagley is a clear cut No. 1, the race for the No. 2 spot is wide open.

“The real race is for the No. 2 spot that is currently occupied by Zion Williamson,” Bossi writes. “The way I see it, 7-footer Bol Bol and 6-foot-8 point forward Cameron Reddish could easily make a claim for that spot. Not only are they both big-time talents with great positional size and high skill levels, they’ve put up huge numbers on the grassroots circuit in Nike’s EYBL.”
