The Wildcats could be landing the top point guard recruit in the nation.

Earlier today, Kentucky offered five-star point guard Ashton Hagans. Hagans is the No. 1 point guard in the 2019 class.

However, there is a chance that Hagans could reclassify to 2018. The onetime Georgia commit reopened his recruitment last month.

If Shai Gilgeous-Alexander leaves for the NBA as many anticipate, Hagans could help ease the loss.

Currently, Kentucky is trending heavily in Hagans' 247Sports Crystal Ball.

Hagans is the No. 8 player in the 2019 class, per 247Sports' Composite Rankings.
