Update: It would appear Kentucky is in a good spot heading into Jayden Quaintance’s decision.
With Quaintance set to make the call at any moment before Wednesday, recruiting predictions are coming in for the Wildcats to land the five-star big man.
It began with Jamie Shaw logging the first prediction of any kind at On3, and it’s for Kentucky.
Then came the first 247 Sports Crystal Ball pick for Quaintance, also in favor of Kentucky.
Perhaps the biggest of them all came from recruiting guru Trilly Donovan, who is also picking the Wildcats to win out.
Time for John Calipari and Co. to finish this one off.
The Cats are now hoping to keep that momentum rolling with one of the best players in the 2024 class.
On Friday, it was reported that 2024 big man Jayden Quaintance is down to two options, including Kentucky and Missouri.
And now, Rivals reporter David Sisk (via Justin Rowland) says that Quaintance plans to announce his decision by Wednesday.
So for now, the big-time prospect will sign during the early signing period.
According to 247 Sports, Quaintance is currently the No. 9 overall player and No. 2 overall center in the class.
In a recent interview with On3, Quaintance talked about each of his two finalists, and here is what he had to say about the Cats.
“They have had a lot of success with previous draft picks. They’ve had guard success, but they’ve had good success with bigs, a lot more than other colleges. Coach (John) Calipari has been showing a lot of love, and Coach Chin (Coleman), too. Coach Cal has already come to Word of God twice to see me. We’ve been able to build a good relationship.”
As the recruitment of the 6-foot-9 big winds down, with a decision expected during the fall signing period, where do you think he ends up committing to? Let us know in the poll below and in the comments section!
