LEXINGTON — The 2015-16 Kentucky basketball season tips off on Friday at the annual Big Blue Madness extravaganza in Lexington, and a star-studded guest list of top recruits will have a front row seat at Rupp Arena.
Here’s a list of the confirmed prospects who will be in attendance (rankings from Scout.com):
- Harry Giles: 5-star PF, No. 1 player in 2016
- De’Aaron Fox: 5-star PG, No. 1 in 2016, No. 4 player overall
- Rawle Alkins: 5-star SG, No. 20 player in 2016
- Malik Monk: 5-star SG, No. 6 player in 2016
- Kris Wilkes: 5-star SF, No. 12 player in 2017
- Sacha Killeya-Jones: 4-star PF, verbally committed to Kentucky for 2016
