Cunningham

National recruiting experts Andrew Slater and Brian Snow are the latest to add predictions in favor of Oklahoma State to the 247Sports Crystal Ball page of five-star guard Cade Cunningham.

The 6-foot-7 playmaker from Texas recently narrowed his list to 10 schools, including Kentucky, and has been one of the top prospects in the 2020 class this spring. Oklahoma State, however, has emerged as the consensus favorite in his recruitment.

Slater and Snow join 247Sports national analysts Evan Daniels and Jerry Meyer, as well as Rivals.com national analysts Eric Bossi and Corey Evans, in making predictions in favor of the Cowboys for Cunningham, who has risen to No. 2 in the Rivals rankings and No. 3 on 247Sports’ list for 2020.

Cooper

Rivals.com national analyst Eric Bossi logged a Future Cast prediction this week for five-star point guard Sharife Cooper, who received a UK scholarship offer last fall.

Bossi joins several other national recruiting experts in picking Auburn to land Cooper, a 5-foot-11 prospect from the Atlanta area that has been strongly linked to the Tigers over the past several months. Fellow Rivals analyst Corey Evans is also picking Auburn for Cooper, and the Tigers have a huge lead on his 247Sports Crystal Ball page.

Cooper is the No. 15 overall player in the Rivals.com rankings for the 2020 class, and he’s No. 17 nationally in the 247Sports composite rankings. Earlier this year, he became the first non-senior to earn national high school player of the year honors from MaxPreps.com after averaging 28.6 points, 8.6 assists and 4.1 steals per game while leading his team to an undefeated season.

In recent weeks, Matthew Murrell is a name that has popped up on UK’s basketball recruiting radar for the 2020 class.

The 6-foot-4 shooting guard from Memphis is the No. 85 overall player in that class, according to the 247Sports composite rankings, but his stock could be on the rise this summer after an impressive spring on the Under Armour circuit.

John Calipari was at one of his games during the April evaluation period, and UK has been mentioned as a possible school to watch in his recruitment.

RJ Hampton

Five-star guard RJ Hampton is no longer considering Kentucky, his father said on a Memphis-based radio program Monday.

Hampton — a 6-foot-5 playmaker from Texas — had narrowed his recruitment to Kentucky, Kansas, Memphis and Texas Tech, and the Jayhawks have emerged as the major favorite in recent weeks. Over the weekend, national recruiting expert Andrew Slater joined 247Sports’ Evan Daniels and Jerry Meyer, and Rivals.com’s Eric Bossi and Corey Evans as the national analysts that have made predictions in favor of Kansas. All of those predictions have come since last month, and most of them were made over the past couple of weeks.

Boston

Five-star shooting guard Brandon Boston cut his list to four schools Saturday, and Kentucky is still in the mix.

Boston — a 6-foot-6 prospect from the Atlanta area — is down to UK, Duke, Florida and Auburn. The list didn’t come as a surprise — those are the four programs he’s been talking about the most this spring.

Kentucky hosted Boston for a home game during SEC play, and he raved about that visit during an interview with the Herald-Leader recently. Earlier this week, national recruiting experts Jerry Meyer and Andrew Slater both logged Crystal Ball predictions in favor of the Wildcats.

Last week, UK emerged as a heavy favorite on his 247Sports Crystal Ball page, but Daniels changed his prediction to “undecided” a few days ago and is now going with the Huskies.
