Michael Porter Jr. is the consensus No. 1 pick in the 2018 draft, and he hasn’t even entered college yet.
Scouts rave about high school superstar Michael Porter Jr. Porter committed to Washington in November, however, that may be about to change.
Washington fired head basketball coach Lorenzo Romar today in a surprising announcement. On Romar’s staff was Michael Porter, the father of the No. 2 recruit in the 2017 recruiting class. Now, many around the country are wondering if Michael Porter Jr. will stick with his commitment to the Huskies.
It doesn’t look good, as Porter put out this tweet following the firing of Romar.
Loved this coaching staff and couldn't wait to start something special next year…this hurts. 😔

Of course Porter wasn’t happy with the news, as his father was out of the job, and his supposed head coach was gone. However, Porter’s father is reportedly joining the staff at Missouri, where newly hired head coach Cuonzo Martin resigned from his post at Cal to join the Tigers.
Now, Missouri could land one of the best high school recruits in recent memory — but are the Tigers alone in their pursuit of Porter?
Here are three schools Porter could commit to.
