Longtime Rivals.com national recruiting analyst Eric Bossi has made the move to 247Sports, and he revealed his first Crystal Ball prediction at his new gig Monday morning.
Bossi — one of the most respected recruiting analysts in the country — is predicting that five-star point guard Hunter Sallis will ultimately commit to the Wildcats, who extended a scholarship offer to the 6-foot-5 playmaker from Omaha over the summer.
247Sports ranks Sallis as the No. 6 overall player in the 2021 class, and Rivals.com — while under Bossi’s watch — recently ranked Sallis as the No. 6 prospect and No. 1 point guard in that group. He’s emerged in recent weeks as perhaps UK’s top recruiting priority for 2021.
There’s still a ways to go in Sallis’ recruitment — and Kansas and North Carolina are also thought to be among his top schools — but it’s certainly interesting that Bossi would choose Sallis to Kentucky as his first public prediction at 247Sports.
