According to Recruiting Services Consensus Index, UK basketball’s 2017 recruiting class is the best class ever.
The 2017 class totals 592, which tops the previous record of 557 by Kentucky’s 2013 class.
Here is a what RSCI says about UK’s 2017 class:
1) Kentucky (592 pts)
#9 Kevin Knox
#12 Jarred Vanderbilt
#14 P.J. Washington
#17 Nick Richards
#22 Quade Green
#29 Shai Gilgeous-Alexander
#45 Hamidou Diallo
#68 Jamarl Baker
We have a new record! This class beats out the previous record of 557 by the UK 2013 class by a decent margin. If all five of the RSCI sources had counted Hamidou Diallo with the 2017 class (2 deemed him to be a 2016 recruit even though he joined the team midyear and didn’t play), the Wildcats’ score would have been more like a mind blowing 637.
