Basketball: USA Men’s Junior National Team Minicamp
Oct 5, 2018; Colorado Springs, CO, USA; USA Men’s Junior National Team participant Jeremy Roach (49) during minicamp at the U.S. Olympic Training Center. 
Isaiah J. Downing-USA TODAY Sports has a Kentucky-centric (naturally) breakdown of the current Top Ten recruits. We say current because first, any list is entirely subjective. No one ever put David Robinson or Tim Duncan on a Top Ten list and in Robinson’s case, possibly not even in his hometown of Manassas, Virginia. In Duncan’s case, former Wake classmate/then Michigan/and finally Tar Heel Makhtar N’diaye was thought to be the better prospect.

More recently, no one thought much of Ja Morant coming out of high school and he ended up at Murray State - a good basketball school to be sure but not elite or anything.

So you never really know.

That said, here’s the list from with some guesses about who leads with what prospect. Keep in mind that Duke already has a commitment from PG Jeremy Roach.
