Basketball recruiting analyst Dain Ervin is currently ranked as the No. 1 prognosticator for prospects in the class of 2019, and he’s predicting quite the haul for Kentucky in the class of 2020.
His latest prediction, made Sunday morning, is that the Cats will ultimately land five-star point guard Sharife Cooper, who recently visited Lexington and picked up a UK scholarship offer on that trip.
Ervin also had previous class of 2020 predictions going Kentucky’s way for five-star guards Jalen Green and Jeremey Roach, five-star wing Cade Cunningham and five-star post player N’Faly Dante. The Cats have already extended scholarship offers to all of those players except for Cunningham, who the Herald-Leader has been told should be seen as a major UK target.
Those players’ rankings in the 247Sports composite: Green (No. 2), Cunningham (No. 8), Dante (No. 10), Roach (No. 16) and Cooper (No. 22).
