2019 star point guard Ashton Hagans has made his college decision once again. The talented junior was originally committed to the Georgia Bulldogs and is thinking about reclassifying now that he is headed to Kentucky. Hagans decommitted from the Bulldogs after rumors that head coach Mark Fox would be fired. Hagans now finds himself at the one and done capital of college basketball, and he is also considering reclassifying to the 2018 recruiting class.

Hagans has not made any decisions yet when it comes to the possible reclassification and the decision may not come until the summer. This comes on the heels of Kentucky also landing five-star recruit E.J. Montgomery who is a member of the 2018 recruiting class already. Kentucky typically sees its roster gutted each season, so it depends on young freshman coming in each and every year. The Wildcats were looking a little short with “only” two five star recruits, but now are sitting pretty with three or four talented five-star recruits coming in next year.
Rumors were flying that John Calipari was losing his recruiting touch, but this class should certainly quell talk about the Kentucky head coach not being able to pull in those big-time recruits. Hagans is often described as a big and powerful guard, and with several names leaving the Wildcats this is a huge add for Kentucky. Hagans could be joining Montgomery, Keldon Johnson, Immanuel Quickley, and Tyler Herro which would be an incredibly talented group for John Calipari. The Wildcats have reloaded for the 2018 season and regardless of when Hagans decides to come to the Wildcats, he is likely to be extremely successful.
