The nation’s top rising juniors are beginning to separate themselves from the rest of the pack as we head into camp season. Over the next few months, we’ll receive even more clarity as to which prospects are the best of the best from the 2024 class. But before we move into the summer, let’s check in on how the current Kentucky targets are being perceived by recruiting scouts.

On Monday afternoon, our good friends over at On3 updated their class of 2024 On300 player rankings. There was plenty of movement from top to bottom, including plenty of new arrivals and just three five-star-worthy players. A handful of these top 300 recruits have connections to the Wildcats, too. However, only one recruit, Knox Central’s Gavin Chadwell, hails from the Bluegrass State.

Let’s check in on who these UK targets are and where they stand in the latest update.

Players marked with an * have significant Kentucky interest.
