One of the top prospects in the class of 2020, Nimari Burnett, announced on Monday that he would be narrowing down his list to five schools.
Louisville, Oregon, Alabama, Michigan, and Texas Tech are all still in the running for the five-star guard from Chicago and one school will be getting a dynamic combo guard for their 2020 recruiting class.
But what does each school have to offer and what stands out? Burnett spoke to Phenom Hoops about each school.
Oregon- A good school with a great coaching staff who sees me coming straight in and being the starting point guard of hopefully a national championship-contending team.
Alabama- A new coaching staff coming from Buffalo who has known me for a while and who believes in me being an intricate part of the team and lead them to a national championship. They also see me playing mostly point guard there.
Michigan- I’ve known Juwan Howard since I was little and we’re like family. He’s also a good coach from past experience with a group of good coaches and a good recruiting class, which is important because I really want to win.
Texas Tech- A new incoming school who just hired Coach Ulric who previously coached at Texas A&M. Also, Coach Beard has had a lot of success in the past years. They see me playing point guard, developing into a one and done prospect and leading the team to a national championship.
Louisville- A school with some of the greatest fans in the world, along with a great coaching staff and recruiting class. They see me playing point guard and helping the team win from day one.
