The final period of the summer for college basketball coaches to evaluate high school recruits ended Sunday, and UK Coach John Calipari spent much of the week in Las Vegas checking out a few of his top targets.

With three July evaluation periods completed, the recruiting calendar now turns to the season of on-campus visits, narrowing school lists and, possibly, more scholarship offers to be doled out by the Wildcats.

The Next Cats pages for UK’s top targets in the classes of 2017 and 2018 were updated Monday with the latest recruiting info, rankings and video highlights for nearly 30 prospects on Calipari’s radar. (The 2017 page also includes Crystal Ball predictions for each of the Cats’ top targets). There are 14 players from the class of 2017 with UK scholarship offers, four such recruits from the class of 2018 and several more that could receive offers from Calipari in the coming weeks.
