2020 Five-Star Recruit Jalen Green Will Make His College Decision on Christmas

USA Basketball

We already have one-third of our “pie in the sky” recruiting pipe dream, and now we have a decision date announced for another slice.

Five-star guard Jalen Green, the No. 3 overall prospect in the 2020 class, has set an announcement date. And we’re hoping it will be wrapped and placed under a blue-and-white Christmas tree.

Green, 6-foot-5, is down to Memphis along the Cats and was initially targeting the Spring of 2020 for a decision, but has since pushed that up.

With BJ Boston and Cam’Ron Fletcher in the fold for 2020, the idea of adding Green and fellow five-star guard Josh Christopher is tantalizing the Kentucky coaching staff. Green might be the best out of any of them. We talk about Green as being just a slice of the dream, when really, he’s what makes it such a delicious thought to begin with.

Now I really can’t wait for the holidays.

    Gives him enough time to see if Penny can do anything with talent.

      Good point. With the “crystal ball” favoring Memphis, it would help our cause if the Tigers flounder early. We need to break our top 5 drought and stiffing Memphis in the process would make it even sweeter.

    Anybody know what Memphis’ non conference schedule is looking like? Let’s hope they play against some legitimate teams because the AAC will be down this year. If Penny Hardaway can’t win their conference this year with the roster he has he doesn’t deserve to coach anywhere

      If he picks Memphis over Kentucky he’s not smart enough to wear UK blue anyway.
