Kentucky will officially finish with six top-50 prospects - including two top-ten talents - in the final Rivals recruiting rankings. In their latest update released today, B.J. Boston came in at No. 4 overall, followed by Terrence Clarke at No. 7, and Isaiah Jackson at No. 26 to round out Kentucky's five-star signees. Boston’s finish gives John Calipari his first top-five signee since Skal Labissiere finished No. 1 in the 2015 recruiting rankings. “After moving from Georgia to California for his senior season, B.J. Boston took his game to another level,” Rivals said of Boston’s finish as a top-five prospect. “He has a gorgeous jump shot, tremendous size for a two-guard and can create for himself with ease.” “A natural scorer who is aggressive in hunting jump shots, Terrence Clarke is a big two-guard with some pop in his legs,” Rivals continued on Kentucky’s other top-ten signee. “He gets to his spots, is never shy about letting it fly and can catch opponents with above-the-rim finishes.” “Isaiah Jackson is just starting to scratch the surface of what he could be as a player. He’s arguably the best shot-blocker in the class, is a highlight finisher and took big steps on the offensive end as a senior.” From there, both Devin Askew and Lance Ware dropped to high four-stars, with the former coming in at No. 31 overall and the latter coming in at No. 34. Askew fell five spots to become the second-highest ranked four-star in the class, while Ware fell two spots to become the fifth-highest ranked four-star. To close out the class, Cam'Ron Fletcher dropped four spots to No. 46 overall, firmly placing him in four-star status. You can check out the entire top-50 below:
