Kentucky basketball recruiters have begun the process of recruiting the nation’s No. 1-ranked recruiting class, which has more than 200 commitments from five schools and offers five-star defensive lineman Alex Gettis.
In an effort to keep Kentucky as competitive as possible, ESPN’s Paul Flannery broke down all the top prospects Kentucky has offered so far.
The class will feature seven players in the 2018 class and six in 2019, plus another three players in 2020.
The top-ranked 2018 class had six top-100 players, including four-star recruit D’Angelo Taylor (Ohio State), six-star guard Tyus Battle (Florida), five-stars Jordon Scott (Mississippi State), guard Travin Dural (South Carolina) and six-stars Tyreek Burris (Oregon State).
The 2018 class will also feature six- and seven-star recruits Devante Diggs (Texas A&M), Devonte Jones (Kentucky) and Jalen Collins (North Carolina State).
The 2019 class also features four- and five-sport stars Trevon Smith (Ohio), Xavier Rathan-Mayes (Florida) and Alex Jackson (Michigan State).
In addition to the 2018 and 2019 classes, Kentucky also offered five-and six-sports stars Tyshawn Johnson (Alabama), Damontae Kazemi (Michigan), Malik Jefferson (Louisville) and Treyvon Martin (Missouri).
In 2020, the Wildcats also added four-sack commit Isaiah Harris, who also committed to the program in March.
The 2018-19 recruiting class was bolstered by the addition of five- and six, five-stash prospects Jamal Hill (Kentuckians), Kahlil Taylor (Missinois) and Isaiah Ogbuehi (Michigan).
Kentucky also landed two five-some recruits in 2019 in guard-turned-offensive lineman Treyvon Williams and running back-turned tight end John Ross.
The 2019 recruiting class features two five players, three five-man targets, a four-man target, a three-man player and a five-spot target.
Kentucky is currently ranked No. 10 in the USA Today Top 25 Coaches Poll and is ranked No and No. 12 in the 247Sports Composite and 247Sports 247Sports National Scout Team rankings.
