See where 2024 UK basketball recruits are in new rankings


Wednesday marked another significant day in the college basketball recruiting landscape.

Rivals released its reworked rankings for class of 2024 players.

Recently, 247Sports also released updated class of 2024 rankings.

There’s plenty of Kentucky interest in the updated rankings.

Kentucky head coach John Calipari and his assistants have been out on the road over the last couple weeks during the start of the college basketball recruiting period, specifically focusing on class of 2023 and class of 2024 players.

UK currently doesn’t have any commits in the class of 2024.

Here’s a look at how UK’s class of 2024 targets (defined as players currently with a Kentucky scholarship offer) shifted in the updated Rivals rankings.
