There have been a few new predictions of note over the past week on the Rivals.com FutureCast pages — that recruiting service’s counterpart to the 247Sports Crystal Ball — relating to some of UK’s remaining targets in the 2019 class.

Georgia now has 100 percent of the predictions for five-star shooting guard Anthony Edwards, who will announce his college decision Monday morning. Kentucky and Florida State are the other two finalists for Edwards — an Atlanta area prospect — but Rivals.com analysts Eric Bossi, Corey Evans and Dan McDonald are among those predicting he will pick the Bulldogs.

McDonald put in a prediction a few days ago favoring Washington for five-star forward Jaden McDaniels, who is also considering Kentucky, San Diego State, Texas and UCLA. Evans has also been predicting that Washington will land McDaniels. Bossi has not yet made a pick in that recruitment, but he did tell the Herald-Leader last week that he thought UK might ultimately land the Seattle native.

David Sisk, who provides good information on UK recruits over at Rivals-affiliated Cats Illustrated, predicted this week that Kentucky target Matthew Hurt will ultimately pick Kansas, which hosted the Minnesota native for an official visit over the weekend. UK, Duke and North Carolina have also hosted Hurt on official visits in recent weeks. Evans and McDonald are also predicting Kansas.

There are no new Rivals.com predictions for UK’s other 2019 target, Keion Brooks, and Indiana still holds 100 percent of the picks on his FutureCast page. Evans wrote about Brooks’ recruitment — and said not to write Kentucky off — in his Wednesday column.
