Ashton Hagans, the No. 1 overall point guard in the class of 2019, just committed to the University of Kentucky after recently decommitting from Georgia. He is said to be thinking of reclassifying to next year’s 2018 class.

Among the schools that offered Hagans included Georgia, Georgia Tech, Louisville, Providence, Maryland, Georgetown, Memphis, Arizona State, Auburn, Florida State and others.

Hagans, like Quade Green and others, dreamed of attending Kentucky. What will such a signing ultimately mean to Green if Hagans joins the Wildcats next year and not 2019?

Green, a 5-star recruit out of Neumann Goretti in Philadelphia and the No. 5-ranked point guard by 247Sports last season, had a tough first season in Lexington.

After averaging 10.4 points through the first 12 games of the season, Quade suffered a back injury and missed three games in the early part of conference play.

By the time he returned, Shai Gilgeous-Alexander was playing outstanding basketball and replaced Green as the Wildcats starting point guard.

Gilgeous-Alexander is off to the NBA, but now Kentucky head coach John Calipari has an incoming class that could include Immanuel Quickley and Hagans if he reclassifies.

Would that push Green to the shooting guard slot, similar to a role Isaiah Briscoe was forced to accept in his final season with the Wildcats?

If Hagans does reclassify, would Green be willing to stay, and most importantly, would Calipari be prepared to trot out a loaded roster that could go 10-deep, with all contributing players being five-star recruits.


If Hagans does reclassify and commits to Kentucky and Quade, who dreamed of playing for a blue-blood, stays put, a backcourt of Green, Quickley, Heroo, and Hagans could drive SEC backcourts crazy.

The ball truly is in Quade Green’s court now.
