Four-star small forward Jalen Lindsey committed to Providence on Monday night.
Lindsey, who had a scholarship offer from Louisville and also drew interest from Kentucky, will play his senior season at Huntington Prep in West Virginia. Huntington Prep Coach Rob Fulford confirmed the commitment to the Herald-Leader.
Scout.com ranks Lindsey as the No. 65 overall prospect in the class of 2014. He’s rated in the top 50 by Rivals and ESPN.
The 6-foot-6 forward from Nashville told the Herald-Leader last month that Louisville, Florida, Tennessee, Vanderbilt, LSU and Mississippi State were the other schools recruiting him the hardest at the time. All of those schools had offered scholarships.
Lindsey had just completed an official visit to Providence, and he said the Friars had made him a priority.
