Nimari Burnett, a budding five-star prospect out of the 2020 college basketball recruiting class, has been offered a scholarship by the Iowa Hawkeyes and Wake Forest Demon Deacons. This news was relayed on Twitter by Stockrisers reporter Jake Weingarten.
This continues a recent trend of the young man being offered scholarships by some of the bigger programs in the country. The Alabama Crimson Tide recently offered the youngster a deal, with other programs like the Michigan Wolverines also keeping a watchful eye on him.
That’s not even mentioning the fact that the Arkansas Razorbacks, LSU Tigers and Vanderbilt Commodores also recently sent him offers.
As for Nimari Burnett, the stars attached to his name are beginning to grow. While some reputable recruiting service websites have him pegged as a four-star caliber prospect, others are starting to tout him as a five. Nevertheless, most tend to agree he’s one of the 35 (or so) best players in the entire 2020 recruiting class. In turn, it’s no wonder programs are going after him.
Only time will tell if the Iowa Hawkeyes or Wake Forest Demon Deacons can land the youngster.
