The nation's top senior high school basketball recruit could announce his future plans in the coming days.
Chet Holmgren, the 7-foot phenom from Minnehaha Academy in Minneapolis, will announce will make his announcement – be it for college or another avenue – next week, according to Grassroots Hoops.
As national recruiting analyst Ryan James notes, Holmgren played for the Grassroots Sizzle last spring and summer.
Unlike most recruits, Holmgren has not said much about his recruiting. He hasn't listed a top five or a list of finalists. According to 247 Sports, Gonzaga is the favored landing spot for Holmgren. If accurate, it would be the second massive recruiting win for Gonzaga, who landed point guard Jalen Suggs from Minnehaha Academy last year.
Suggs is now one of the top point guards in college basketball and projected by most to be a top-five pick in this summer's NBA Draft. Suggs and Holmgren were teammates at Minnehaha Academy.
It's also possible that Holmgren doesn't play college basketball. The NBA's G League Ignite now serves as a developmental team for some of the top prospects who graduate high school.
Two of the nation's top recruits in the Class of 2020, Jalen Green and Jonathan Kuminga, are playing for the G League Ignite, which is allowed to pay players up to $500,000. Green and Kuminga will be eligible for the NBA Draft this summer.
