Last week four-star guard Shai Gilgeous-Alexander backed off an early committed to Florida. Now he’s becoming one of the most sought after guards in the 2017 class.
After fielding calls from 46 schools since his decommitment, Gilgeous-Alexander, according to a source, is considering eight schools -- Florida, NC State, UNLV, Kentucky, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas and Syracuse.
Kentucky is expected to evaluate him at his school on Monday, while Kansas is expected in on Tuesday.
Gilgeous-Alexander, a 6-foot-5, 175-pounder out of Chattanooga (Tenn.) Hamilton Heights Christian, is regarded as the No. 46 overall prospect and the No. 12 point guard in the 2017 recruiting class.
Gilgeous-Alexander has yet set up any school visits.
Over the summer, Gilgeous-Alexander played for Canada in the FIBA U18 Americas. Through five games, Gilgeous-Alexander averaged 7.8 points, 5.4 assists and four rebounds a game.
