The Arizona State Sun Devils men’s basketball squad continues to have national buzz after landing Joshua Christopher’s commitment earlier in the week. On Thursday, one of the top 2021 recruits, Jaden Hardy, placed Arizona State in his top 12 that included Arizona, UCLA, Oregon, Georgia, Texas Tech, Georgetown, Kentucky, Michigan, Memphis, Illinois and Kansas.
The 6-foot-4 combo guard out of Henderson, Nevada is rated as a five-star recruit by Rivals and 247Sports. Each site lists him as the top player in Nevada and at his position, as well as the sixth overall recruit in the class. Both services’ predictions currently list Kentucky as the favorite.
