Reddish

Scout.com national recruiting analyst Evan Daniels logged a Crystal Ball prediction on Cameron Reddish’s 247Sports page Sunday, and it’s bad news for Kentucky.

Daniels is picking Duke for Reddish, who is ranked by Scout.com as the No. 4 overall prospect in the 2018 class and has been one of UK’s top recruiting targets from that group for well over a year.

Reddish — a 6-foot-7 wing from Pennsylvania — narrowed his list to UK, Duke, UCLA, UConn and Villanova earlier this month. Duke and Kentucky have been considered the top two teams in his recruitment for the past few months.

He is one of the leading scorers on the Nike circuit, and the Herald-Leader was told a couple of weeks ago that Duke might currently be the team to beat in his recruitment.

Quickley

Immanuel Quickley and Cameron Reddish — two of UK’s top recruiting targets in the class of 2018 — took unofficial visits this weekend.

Quickley visited Maryland, his home state school, for the Terrapins’ game against Michigan State on Saturday. The 6-foot-3 point guard is ranked by Scout.com as the No. 2 player at that position and No. 10 overall recruit in the 2018 class.

Reddish — a 6-7 wing from Norristown, Pa. — visited UConn on Sunday. He’s the No. 4 overall player in the Scout.com rankings and a high school teammate of UK target Mohamed Bamba, the No. 2 player in the 2017 class.

Quickley and Reddish both visited UK for Big Blue Madness in October, and both players have scholarship offers from the Wildcats.
