Kentucky can still pass Duke for best recruiting class

Duke has the top three players in America in RJ Barrett, Zion Williamson and Cam Reddish, but Kentucky can still end up with the top-ranked 2018 class before it's all said and done. The addition of EJ Montgomery moved Kentucky up to second in the 247Sports Composite, up from sixth in the rankings this time last week. John Calipari still hopes to add Ashton Hagans to the fold, which could then move the Cats ahead of the Blue Devils, depending on where Hagans is slotted. Jerry Meyer over at 247Sports believes Hagans should be a top-10 prospect in the 2018 class, should he reclassify from 2019. If that's the case, Kentucky would overtake Duke for the top spot with a commitment from Hagans. And there is some speculation Hagans' commitment isn't too far away. So while Duke celebrates its three elite signees (all from the same position, which should be fun), John Calipari is still grinding away and on track to land the nation's top-rated crop of talent. Get in here, Ashton.
