Harper has yet to receive a ranking from 247Sports, but he’ll head to Lexington next year to try to help the Wildcats continue on their upward trajectory.
The Wildcats now have 19 members in their 2019 class. Prior to Harper’s commitment, Kentucky had the No. 7 class in the SEC and the No. 20 overall class in the nation, according to 247Sports.
