Five-star guard Jalen Green — one of the top prospects in the class of 2020 — is the latest basketball recruit to land a scholarship offer from Kentucky.
Green — a 6-foot-5 player from Fresno, Calif. — hosted UK coaches for a visit last week and is the No. 2 overall prospect in the class of 2020, according to the 247Sports composite rankings. He took an official visit to Memphis last month and also has early scholarship offers from Kansas, Villanova, UCLA, Arizona and several other top programs.
MaxPreps.com named Green the national sophomore of the year following last season, when he averaged 27.9 points, 7.7 rebounds and 2.8 assists per game at the high school level.
