Could Kentucky basketball be getting richer soon?
The Wildcats made the top eight for 5-star power forward P.J. Washington out of Findlay Prep and originally from Dallas.

Kentucky is joined in the top eight by Texas, North Carolina State, Kansas, UCLA, Arizona, UNLV and North Carolina. Washington trimmed down the list from over a dozen offers, including Alabama, Florida and Texas A&M.
Washington is listed at 6-foot-7 and 225 pounds. He is a consensus 5-star prospect and ranked the No. 16 player in the class for 2017. Kentucky is trailing just behind Texas for Washington’s services, according to 247’s Crystal Ball predictions.
Kentucky is still searching for its first commitment of the 2017 class.
