[caption id="attachment_235620" align="alignnone" width="1409"] Kelly Kline/Under Armour[/caption] ESPN Recruiting released its new rankings for the 2018 high school basketball class on Monday, and one of Kentucky's three signees earned a new star by his name. Tyler Herro, the shooting guard out of Wisconsin, got bumped up to a five-star prospect in the new update. Herro climbed two spots from No. 27 to No. 25 overall, but remained the fourth-best shooting guard of the group. Keldon Johnson is the highest ranked recruit in Kentucky's class, coming in at No. 6 in the rankings; while Immanuel Quickley climbed from No. 19 to No. 17 and is considered the third-best point guard. Duke's R.J. Barrett, Zion Willamson and Cameron Reddish are the top three players in the class.
