Seven Kentucky Wildcats are in Scout's final 2017 Top 100 Rankings

04/19/2017 06:01 PM released its final 2017 top 100 rankings this afternoon and seven Kentucky Wildcats made the list. Hamidou Diallo, who enrolled at Kentucky this semester, is the highest ranked at No. 10. Jarred Vanderbilt is right behind him at No. 11, P.J. Washington is No. 14, Nick Richards is No. 16, Shai Gilgeous-Alexander is No. 39 and Jemarl Baker is the No. 85 prospect in the class.

Three of Kentucky’s remaining targets are also in the top 100. Mohamed Bamba is No. 2, Kevin Knox is No. 9, and Mark Smith moved up 24 spots to No. 76.

It’s an impressive class that may not be complete just yet. Clayton Abernathy and Bradley McKee break it all down.
