Sure, the 2013 basketball season is kicking off with Big Blue Madness tickets drawing a record number of campers, and the 2013 recruits haven’t even stepped on the court… but why not look towards the future. Tonight, we look at Kentucky’s current class 2014 rankings.
Kentucky, having two commitments, dropped one spot to #8 in ESPN’s updated 2014 class rankings over the last week. The drop to 8th comes after the Louisville Cardinals jumped 13 spots from #19 to #6 after receiving a verbal committment from ESPN 100 center Chinanu Onuaku last week.
The 6’10″ Onuaku is ESPN’s #74 nationally ranked recruit and Scout’s #69.
Never fear though Cat fans, Louisville is still outside the top 10 (13th) according to Scout, with the Wildcats remaining in 5th.
There is still plenty of time left for the positions to shuffle and Kentucky find themselves continuing their reign of top recruiting classes with 21 of the top 100, including 7 of the top 10 and 10 of the top 20 (all 5 star recruits) are still uncommitted.
Of those 21, 8 list Kentucky as still in the running for their services, including:
#2 Myles Turner
#4 Tyus Jones
#7 Trey Lyles
