Jalen Green is in the process of setting up official visits for this fall, and Kentucky may be hosting him during a prime weekend for recruiting.
According to KSR’s Jack Pilgrim, Green will likely visit Lexington for Big Blue Madness, though it’s not a done deal.

The 6-5, 170-pound guard out of California recently decided to attend Prolific Prep for his final season of high school hoops, though he reportedly considered going overseas, a rumor that has since been debunked.
However, this recruitment is widely believed to come down to Kentucky and Memphis, just as was the case in the 2019 class with James Wiseman. Penny Hardaway and the Tigers ultimately won out, but John Calipari and co. are doing their best to win the battle for this elite guard. Currently, all four predictions at Rivals are for Memphis.
Green is tentatively set to announce his college decision on Dec. 25, giving one school a Christmas present it won’t soon forget.
Will it be Kentucky, or will Penny beat out the Wildcats for yet another game-changing recruit?
Only time will tell, but getting Green to Lexington for Big Blue Madness will certainly help the Wildcats’ cause.
