Rivals.com national analyst Corey Evans has logged a new Future Cast prediction in favor of Oregon for five-star center N’Faly Dante, a top recruit in the 2020 class who is expected to reclassify to 2019 and play college basketball this season.
Though recruiting experts are having a tough time pegging a clear favorite for Dante, the consensus is that he will choose either Oregon and Kentucky, and a college decision — as well as final word on reclassification — is expected very soon.
Dante is the No. 9 overall recruit in the 2020 class, according to Rivals.com, and he’d likely end up in a similar spot if he does indeed move to 2019. He likely represents Kentucky’s last possible addition for the 2019-20 team, which has already been in Lexington for summer practices. Fall classes start at UK at the end of August.
