ESPN’s latest update to its Top 100 prospects for this year’s NBA Draft includes a new Kentucky Wildcat in first-round range, giving UK three players in the top 30.

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, who has had an impressive last couple of weeks on the court, is now the No. 26 overall prospect on ESPN’s list for the 2018 NBA Draft. He was ranked No. 47 overall in the previous update last month.

UK freshman Kevin Knox is still No. 10 overall, followed by Hamidou Diallo, who moves up a spot from the previous update and is now ranked No. 20. Nick Richards, who was previously No. 28, has fallen to No. 44 overall.

PJ Washington is No. 45 on the list, and Jarred Vanderbilt, who has still not played for the Wildcats this season, is No. 46.

Quade Green, Wenyen Gabriel and Sacha Killeya-Jones are not included in ESPN’s Top 100.
