Kentucky basketball already had a great recruiting class before Sunday. It just officially got even better.

Five-star point guard Ashton Hagans, who committed to the Wildcats in April, has officially reclassified and will join the UK program for next season.

Hagans teased the news on Friday when he posted a picture of himself in a cap and gown from graduation.

Kentucky made it official this afternoon.

With Hagans in the fold, Kentucky's incoming class now includes four five-star prospects, plus four-star Tyler Herro.

The Wildcats have the No. 2 recruiting class in the nation, trailing only Duke.
