Jonathan Kuminga has officially reclassified into the 2020 class. He did so Sunday as he graduated from The Patrick School in New Jersey.
However, the recent buzz surrounding Kuminga is that he will never play a minute of college basketball.
Corey Evans of Rivals recently wrote that the G-League is the “most likely” outcome for Kuminga. He also said that if Kuminga goes to college, “Auburn and Texas Tech are the two programs to beat,” while Kentucky looks unlikely.
In addition, 247 Sports recruiting analyst Chad Lykins recently logged a Crystal Ball prediction that Kuminga would go pro.
The 6-8, 205-pound small forward recently released a final five with four schools that included the Kentucky Wildcats, Auburn Tigers, Texas Tech Red Raiders and Duke Blue Devils. Going pro was his fifth option.
It’s unclear when Kuminga will make a decision on whether to go pro or pick a college, but either way, Kentucky looks highly unlikely to land the talented forward who will contend for the No. 1 overall NBA Draft pick in 2021.
