Over the weekend four star SF Selton Miguel took his official visit to Kansas State, who is thought to be Western Kentucky’s best challenger in recruiting Miguel. In a recent interview with Grant Flanders of Rivals, Miguel said, Kansas State is “recruiting him the hardest.”
I felt good about Western Kentucky landing Miguel before this weekend, but now I’d say it’s 50/50.
It has already been covered that Western Kentucky and Kansas State are both listed as the top contenders for Miguel in 2020. And Miguel says he is still open to the recruitment of other schools and still has the same announcement date of September 22 in his plans.
19 Days until 4 Star SF Selton Miguel is set to narrow his list to 7, recruiting expert Russ Wood predicts Miguel to commit to Western Kentucky.
Woods logged his pick of WKU on the Rivals recruiting website on August 20th.
Russ is an expert on Basketball recruiting with an 89.7% accuracy rate (95/106). Woods has not logged an incorrect prediction in the rivals site since January of this year (20 picks ago).
The Biggest Threat
The biggest threat in the recruitment of Selton is Kansas State, which he will officially visit this weekend. This weekend will be huge in the recruitment of Miguel. Kansas State will get the last visit of Miguels recruiting process. Therefore, getting to make the last impression.
Miguel has risen up the recruiting ranking over the past weeks. Rising from 135th overall in May to 103 overall in late August. (More change likely to come).
With no decison date set yet, adding a commitment of Selton Miguel would mean Western Kentucky would add their 8th best overall prospect in school history according to 247 sports.
