ESPN just updated its Top 100 rankings for the 2018 class and, not surprisingly, every player in the top five has an offer from Kentucky. Marvin Bagley leads the way at #1, followed by Zion Williamson, Cameron Reddish, Bol Bol, and Romeo Langford. How good is Bagley? Paul Biancardi said the 6'11" power forward is a "once-in-a-lifetime talent" that would go number one in THIS year's draft. "The 2017 NBA Draft could be one of the best in a long time and could have the most one-and-done picks since the inception of the rule in 2005. Even with top talents like Markelle Fultz, Lonzo Ball, Josh Jackson, Jayson Tatum and others, Bagley would go before all of them. Bagley is the best pro prospect in the last 10 years. The NBA looks hard at position size combined with athletic ability, measurables, scoring skills and basketball knowledge. Bagley's game has a maturity with high end results as he flirts with a triple-double on some nights. He will be the top pick in the 2019 NBA draft if he continues to do his job." Here's the rest of the top 15 for 2018 (players with confirmed UK offers in bold):

1. Marvin Bagley, III 2. Zion Williamson 3. Cameron Reddish 4. Bol Bol 5. Romeo Langford 6. Moses Brown 7. Nazreon Reid 8. Jordan Brown 9. Simisola Shittu 10. Jontay Porter (commited to Missouri) 11. Darius Garland 12. Emmitt Williams 13. Keldon Johnson 14. Immanuel Quickley 15. Jahvon Quinerly

Keep in mind that Cameron Reddish, Bol Bol, Romeo Langford, and Immanuel Quickley are all in Colorado Springs to try out for Calipari's U19 National Team this week. Read more of Biancardi's takeaways on the 2018 class and see the full rankings below. And then watch Bagley take on Bol Bol. [ESPN]
