One of the nation’s top high school basketball players will forgo the college route and turn professional instead.

Jalen Green, a consensus top three recruit in the 2020 high school class, announced Thursday afternoon that he will play in the NBA G League next year instead of attending school for one year

The NBA/G League professional pathway program launched in 2018, and Green is the first participant in the reshaped version. Per ESPN, Green will receive $500,000 and will be provided a program that includes professional coaching and mentorship outside of the traditional G League schedule, while competing against those teams throughout the season. 

ESPN also reported other prospects in the 2020 class — such as  Isaiah Todd, Makur Maker, Karim Mane and Kai Sotto — could join Green in this venture.

A native of Fresno, California, Green is a 6-foot-5 guard who is already primed to be a top draft pick in the 2021 NBA draft. ESPN ranks him as the top player in the class. 

Among the college teams vying for what likely would have been one season of Green's services were Auburn, Oregon, Memphis, Fresno State, USC and Oregon, according to ESPN.
