A new Crystal Ball prediction has been logged in favor of Kentucky for five-star point guard Jeremy Roach, one of the top basketball prospects in the class of 2020.
Dain Ervin of Basketball Illustrated Reports logged the pick for UK on Tuesday night. On Wednesday, it was confirmed that Roach has a UK scholarship offer. Ervin is currently the No. 1-ranked Crystal Ball prognosticator for recruits in the 2019 class.
Roach — a 6-foot-2 point guard from Leesburg, Va. — is ranked by 247Sports as the No. 11 overall player and No. 1 point guard in the 2020 class. UK is also actively recruiting RJ Hampton, the No. 1 combo guard in that class.
As a sophomore last season, Roach averaged a team-high 15.2 points per game and led his squad to a 33-4 record. He played this past summer on the Nike circuit.
Roach has already taken an unofficial visit to Lexington and often mentions UK as one of the schools that is recruiting him the hardest.
