If recent Kentucky commit Ashton Haggans does decided to reclassify into the 2018 recruiting class so he can play at UK next year, how would he fit into what already seems like a possible crowded backcourt.
Point guard Quade Green returns for his sophomore season. Shooting guard Jemarl Baker will be back after missing his freshman season with a knee injury.
Signees Tyler Herro, Keldon Johnson and Immanuel Quickley are all guards. And why he’s not expect to return, freshman Hamidou Diallo still has not declared for the NBA draft as most seem to think he will.
“Kentucky now has too much talent in the backcourt, and that is a great problem to have,” said Rivals.com recruiting writer Krysten Peek. “Finding the right duo for the job and getting the chemistry right will be the biggest challenge next year.
“Ashton is one of the most aggressive defenders I’ve ever seen play the game and he’s super explosive on offense. He has a tight handle like Shai Gilgeous-Alexander but will still need some developing at the next level.
“I think Quickley and Quade can player either the one of two but Ashton is a pure point guard.”
