Chet Holmgren, the No. 1 high school basketball recruit in the country, will be announcing his commitment on Monday afternoon.
The five-star big man out of Minneapolis, Minnesota is set to announce his decision at noon E.T. on ESPN. Holmgren, a 7-foot center, is reportedly down to seven schools: Georgetown, Gonzaga, Memphis, Michigan, Minnesota, North Carolina and Ohio State.
There is one very clear favorite for Holmgren’s commitment: Gonzaga.
The Bulldogs are coming off a near-perfect season that ended with a loss to Baylor in the national title game. However, Mark Few’s program could be right back in national title contention in 2021-22, thanks in part to a likely commitment from Holmgren.
All seven of the “Crystal Ball” predictions from 247Sports have Holmgren committing to Mark Few and the Bulldogs.
