Jalen Green and Scottie Barnes, both five-star prospects out of the 2020 college basketball recruiting class, are taking visits with the Oregon Ducks. The visits are this weekend and are official in capacity.
Information about this recruitment happening was relayed to the masses on the mean streets of Twitter by Stockrisers and Rivals grassroots guru Jake Weingarten. It’s worth noting Jalen Green has been recruiting heavily by other programs, including being visited by the Memphis Tigers recently.
As for Jalen Green, he’s as talented as basically any 2020 recruiting prospect. Not only do all reputable recruiting service outlets have the young man pegged as a five-star caliber prospect, but most tend to agree he’s one of the (3 or so) best players in the entire 2020 recruiting class.
The Kentucky Wildcats and Duke Blue Devils have also been heavily involved in the recruitment process of Jalen Green, which isn’t shocking.
Not only do all reputable recruiting service outlets have Scottie Barnes pegged as a five-star caliber player, but nearly all agree he’s one of the two or three best in the entire 2020 recruiting class. In turn, with many stars attached to his name and plenty of hype to go along with it, he’s receiving offers from nearly every notable blue-blood program in the nation.
Nevertheless, only time will tell where Jalen Green and Scottie Barnes inevitably commit. For the Oregon Ducks, they’re hoping this airplane visit ends up being worth its weight in sky miles.
