The three Kentucky Wildcats who have entered their names in this year’s NBA Draft but have not yet hired agents — Wenyen Gabriel, Jarred Vanderbilt and PJ Washington — still have a lot of work to do to raise their draft stock, apparently.

None of those three is listed close to first-round range in ESPN’s most recent rundown of the Top 100 prospects for this year’s draft, which was released Thursday morning. Only Washington — at No. 51 overall — is even in draft range.

Vanderbilt, who’s season was limited by two injuries, is listed at No. 65 overall, and Gabriel is not among the 100 draft-eligible prospects on ESPN’s list. There are a total of 60 picks in the NBA Draft.

The three UK players have until May 30 — 10 days after the conclusion of the NBA Combine — to remove their names from consideration and return to college.
