The top remaining big man in the class of 2020 is set to announce his decision on Wednesday.

Moussa Cisse, a top-ten prospect in the senior class, announced late last night that he will be choosing a college on Wednesday, July 15 at 3 p.m. CT (4 p.m. ET).

Cisse is considered the No. 9 overall prospect and No. 2 center in the 247 Sports Composite Rankings.

The 6-foot-11, 220-pound center is set to choose between Florida State, Georgetown, Georgia, Kentucky, LSU and Memphis.

LSU was seen as an overwhelming favorite to land the five-star center this past winter, spring, and headed into the summer, but with the NCAA handing down numerous Notices of Allegations and punishments following college basketball’s recent pay-for-play scandal, momentum has shifted away from the Tigers of Baton Rouge and in favor of the Tigers in Memphis.

After LSU picked up eight consecutive picks on Cisse’s Crystal Ball in recent months, Memphis has now picked up 11 straight picks for the elite shot blocker originally out of the West African country of Guinea.

While Kentucky technically remains as an option, the Wildcats have not been seen as a legitimate contender since the fall, with the chances dropping even more so following his reclassification to 2020.

Barring a major upset, the expectation is we will see Cisse play for Penny Hardaway at Memphis as opposed to Kentucky or anywhere else in the SEC.

As for Kentucky, its frontcourt hopes rely solely on Wake Forest transfer Olivier Sarr and his battle with the NCAA for eligibility.

    Wonder when Emmerts dictatorship will finally do something about Ten loss Penny, and Fed-X University, thumbing their nose at the NCAA over letting Wiseman’s playing when ineligible ?

    Literally gave the middle finger to the NCAA when they were told to not let Wiseman play in the early games.

    Why are you still reporting on him? I get since he’s “considering” UK you have to, but there hasn’t ever really been a time in the last 6 months to a year that we were serious contenders for him. Move on he’s not coming
