Basketball Recruiting Update

The summer is hot with basketball recruiting even though we are currently in the “Quiet Period”. This Quiet Period is defined by the NCAA as a time in which “In-person recruiting contacts may be made only on the college’s campus. No in person, off-campus contacts or evaluations may occur.” This doesn’t mean we won’t receive commitments during this time, but it will have to be based on summer evaluations and telephone/electronic communications. All diehard UK fans know who’s trending at most points through the process but I wanted to give a quick rundown of who is committed and who could be added to the class of 2020. (Rankings are based on 24/7)
