Reddish: Decision coming “sooner than people expect”

Big, unexpected basketball recruiting news today: Cameron Reddish is close to a decision.

We’ve always thought Immanuel Quickley would be the first of John Calipari’s 2017 targets to announce a commitment, but now Reddish, who played under Cal in Egypt, is nearing the end of his recruitment, too.

Reddish told Krysten Peek of Rivals.com his decision is coming “sooner than people are expecting.”

The five-star forward from Pennsylvania is down to five schools and Kentucky is a serious contender to land his services due to his close relationship and summer experience with Calipari.

“Playing for Team USA under coach Cal gave me a pretty good idea of how he is as a coach,” Reddish told Rivals. “He likes to go and he’s super competitive. I totally understand why players want to play under him because he pushes everyone to be better.”

Duke is also in the hunt and probably the slight favorite with the recent addition of Tre Jones, Reddish’s good friend, at point guard. Jones committed to Duke this past weekend.

UConn, Villanova and UCLA round out Reddish’s final five.

    With Bagley reclassifying that opens up a forward spot next year. Does the timing of this decision hint to a Duke commitment?

    Everyone also thought Knox was headed to the ACC. This dude may be friends with Jones, but he played with Quickly under Cal and probably got a good feel of how it can work. Don’t count out Cal.

    Hate to say it but he’ll most likely end up going to Duke. His buddy went there and the [email protected] seem to have the momentum as of late.
