Duke basketball has one of the most highly-touted recruiting classes in history coming in. The group is currently comprised of the No. 1, No. 2, and No. 3 players in the country, in R.J. Barrett, Cameron Reddish, and Zion Williamson. No. 12 Tre Jones rounds out the group. However, there is the chance that the 2018 Kentucky recruiting class actually passes the Blue Devils’ amazing group.\nThe Wildcats and Blue Devils often duel for the top-ranked class in the country. Mike Krzyzewski has gotten the best of John Calipari in recent years, but somewhat amazingly, Coach Cal could still pull out the top group in 2018. Right now, Kentucky is bringing in three five-star players, with power forward E.J. Montgomery (No. 8), shooting guard Keldon Johnson (No. 11), and point guard Immanuel Quickley (No. 17) in the group. They are joined by four-star shooting guard Tyler Herro.\nCalipari may not be done yet, though. There is a chance that the 2018 Kentucky recruiting class could pull up players that intend to join the ‘Cats down the line.\nThe most likely candidate: 2019 commit Ashton Hagans. The No. 1 point guard in his class gave his pledge to Kentucky a week ago.\nHe could still choose to reclassify, though. That possibility has been floated a bit since his commitment, and there appears to be some momentum behind the idea.\nIn a recent article, 247’s Evan Daniels discussed the impact that Ashton Hagans reclassification would have on the 2018 Kentucky recruiting class.\nIt is unclear exactly where Hagans would slot in the 2018 player rankings. However, adding a fourth five-star player could slide Kentucky past Duke, thanks to the larger class overall. From 247:\n“To potentially reclassify would be big and I know he’s taking the necessary course work but he’s going through that process,” Daniels said. “At this point, he hasn’t made a decision but he’s putting himself in the position to make that call.”\nAs it stands now, Kentucky’s 2018 class is ranked No. 2 nationally in 2018 but could potentially pass Duke for No. 1 should Hagans reclassify later this spring or summer.\nHagans may not be the only reclassifying player either. Fellow five-star guard Tyrese Maxey hasn’t committed to Kentucky, but the Wildcats are probably the favorite to pick him up, especially after his father left the staff at SMU.\nMaxey could also reclassify and join Kentucky’s 2018 class. If he and Hagans both do, Kentucky would almost definitely pass Duke. I don’t think Blue Devils fans would go out of their way to trade classes with Kentucky’s, but it would be a very impressive job by Calipari to bolster that backcourt immediately.\n[247Sports]\nThe post Kentucky Might Pass Duke For No. 1 2018 Recruiting Class appeared first on The Spun.
