  • Marvin Bagley III‘s attempt to reclassify to 2017 from 2018 is coming “pretty late in the process,” an NCAA source told ZAGSBLOG Friday.

    “It’s not going to be a quick deal,” the source said, speaking generally about reclassification. “This kid’s been high-profile for a while and most likely this evaluation is going to take some time just because he’s moved around and he hasn’t even gone through an amateurism certification yet.”

    The 6-foot-11 Bagley is the No. 1-ranked prospect in the Class of 2018. He’s currently at Sierra Canyon (CA) High School after transferring from Hillcrest Prep (AZ), which the NCAA previously looked into.

    “How talented he is doesn’t matter at all,” the NCAA source said. “If he’s got the right credentials as far as academics and he can pass through the amateurism process in time to get on campus that’s all that’s going to matter. But he will have to jump through some hoops for it to happen at this time of year.”
