Top Kentucky basketball recruiting links: Analyst predicts Adem Bona will pick UK

·2 min read

A week before five-star center Adem Bona is set to take the final official visit of his recruitment to UCLA, there’s another Crystal Ball prediction on his 247Sports player page.

This one is in favor of Kentucky, which hosted Bona for an official visit earlier this month and is now battling the Bruins for his commitment as the Prolific Prep (Calif.) big man nears a decision. 247Sports analyst Dushawn London logged the pro-UK pick Friday, the first prediction on Bona’s Crystal Ball page in nearly two months. Over at, two predictions went in favor of UCLA earlier in the week.

247Sports ranks Bona as the No. 10 overall player in the 2022 class, and the 6-foot-11 is Kentucky’s only frontcourt target for next season. The back-and-forth nature of these recent expert picks show that Bona’s recruitment is still viewed as something of a toss-up, even with a college decision likely coming in the next few weeks.

Things should start to clear up some in the days following his UCLA visit, which is scheduled to begin Friday.
