USATSI_9219038_154849602_lowres Yesterday, ESPN released their final rankings for the 2016 basketball recruiting class, and today, 247 Sports followed suit. Most of UK's signees slipped in the rankings, but four of the five are still in the top 15. Bam Adebayo and current targets Jarrett Allen and Marques Bolden moved up in the rankings, to #12, #17, and #18, respectively:

1. Josh Jackson, Kansas 2. Lonzo Ball, UCLA (↑2) 3. Harry Giles, Duke 4. Markelle Fultz, Washington (↑3) 5. Frank Jackson, Duke (↑7) 6. De'Aaron Fox, Kentucky (↓4) 7. Dennis Smith, NC State (↓1) 8. Jayson Tatum, Duke (↑2) 9. Jonathan Isaac, Florida State (↑2) 10. Malik Monk, Kentucky (↓5) 12. Bam Adebayo, Kentucky (↑3) 14. Wenyen Gabriel, Kentucky (↓6) 17. Jarrett Allen (↑13) 18. Marques Bolden (↑13) 24. Sacha Killeya-Jones, Kentucky (↓10)

Also of note: Turkish center Omer Yurtseven is #25 on the list. No word on if UK is still exploring him as an option for next season, but worth mentioning nonetheless. Also of note: Kentucky still has the #1 recruiting class over Duke. Time to watch "Kentucky Reloaded" again: [247 Sports]
