Thursday Quickies: Jonathan Kuminga Decision Date Edition

New, 136 comments

One of the top recruits in 2020 will announce his decision on Monday

Kuminga

The top recruit in the 2020 class will be announcing his decision in just a few days, and Kentucky is among the final five options.

Jonathan Kuminga isn’t likely to pick the Wildcats. It seems recent buzz has been that Kuminga is really down to two options, entering the G-League training program or playing at Texas Tech.

Kuminga also has Duke and Auburn on his final list, but neither are garnering much buzz for Kuminga, who recently reclassified from 2021 to 2020.

Kentucky has been involved with Kuminga for a while now, and once seemed to be in a decent spot, but ultimately it doesn’t appear it will pan out to bring Kuminga into the fold for the upcoming season. Duke was also once perceived as the frontrunner, but it doesn’t seem he will end up in Durham either.

If I had to guess, my bet would be on Kuminga entering the G-League, but the buzz around Texas Tech seems to be legitimate, so that wouldn’t be terribly surprising either. Anything outside of those two options would be a surprise.
