Bryce Hopkins sets decision date

This time and date are set.


We now finally know when four-star power forward Bryce Hopkins will be deciding where he will play college basketball next season.

Hopkins, who postponed an original commitment debate of October 20, has now decided he will make his decision Monday, Oct. 26th at 7:30 pm EST.

In addition, Hopkins’ father told Zags Blog that only five schools are now in consideration: Kentucky, Providence, Indiana, Illinois and Michigan.

“[Those] are the top ones that we’ve been in contact with and Bryce feels comfortable [with],” Hopkins’ father said.

The Illinois native is ranked as the 30th overall player in the country for 2021 and seventh-ranked power forward by 247 Sports.

Hopkins originally committed to Chris Mack and the Louisville Cardinals but decommitted over the Summer, and ever since, the Kentucky Wildcats have been heavy favorites.

Despite this, it is no slam dunk Kentucky will land the talented forward, as Hopkins still is considering five schools and claims he is heavily considering each one of them.

Currently, Kentucky has just one commitment lined up for 2021 in four-star point guard Nolan Hickman.

Hopkins would be just the second recruit and the first frontcourt player to commit to Kentucky since associate head coach Kenny Payne took an assistant coaching position with the New York Knicks.
