UPDATE: Chet Holmgren picks Gonzaga. More here

The most-coveted recruit in the Class of 2021 will announce his college plans during a live broadcast on ESPN on Monday. 

Chet Holmgren, the 7-foot-1 phenom from Minnehaha Academy in Minneapolis, will make his decision at 12 p.m. Monday on ESPN. He's narrowed his list of suitors to seven colleges, one of them being the Golden Gophers. 

  • Georgetown
  • Gonzaga
  • Memphis
  • Michigan
  • Minnesota
  • North Carolina
  • Ohio State

Holmgren was recently named Minnesota's Mr. Basketball winner after leading Minnehaha Academy to a Class 3A state championship. He averaged 21 points and 12.3 rebounds per game. 

He's a 5-star recruit, according to 247 Sports, whose panel of recruiting experts are predicting Holmgren to choose Gonzaga. If he does, he'll follow his Minnehaha Academy teammate Jalen Suggs, who led the Bulldogs to the NCAA national title game and is now likely to be a top-five pick in the upcoming NBA Draft.
