247Sports national analyst Jerry Meyer is now predicting that top basketball recruit Bol Bol will end up at Kentucky.
Bol — a 7-foot-3 prospect from the Los Angeles area — recently narrowed his recruiting list to UK, Arizona, Oregon, Southern Cal and UCLA, but he has effectively cut Arizona and USC after those two schools had assistant coaches arrested last week as part of the federal investigation into corruption in college basketball.
Kentucky is now the leader on Bol’s Crystal Ball page, and 247Sports national analyst Andrew Slater still has a prediction up in favor of the Wildcats dating back to the spring, when Bol received his scholarship offer from UK.
Bol is expected to attend Big Blue Madness next weekend as part of his official visit to Lexington. He’s the No. 3 overall recruit in the 2018 class, according to the 247Sports composite rankings.
