While there are still a few star recruits from the 2019 recruiting class deciding where they'll play college hoops, one of the top 2020 prospects is nearing his final decision.

Keon Johnson has at least 13 offers from teams around the country due to his ability to score in bunches. He is the No. 7 shooting guard for his class, per 247Sports.

Johnson has cut his list down to three teams and revealed his decision date in the process. Both decisions were made public on his Twitter account.

The three programs remaining on his list are Ohio State, Tennessee and Virginia.

As for the official decision date, Johnson will announce his commitment on August 6.

Tennessee is currently the overwhelming favorite to land Johnson. Rick Barnes and the Volunteers provide him a chance to play for a contender and stay close to his hometown of Bell Buckle.

247Sports' predictions has Tennessee receiving 100 percent of their votes. Johnson would be the second top recruit to join Tennessee for the 2020 season, if he chooses that route.

Ohio State and Virginia can't be dismissed in his recruitment. The Cavaliers could suddenly emerge as a threat to win the sweepstakes, especially after winning the national title.

We'll find out Johnson's decision later this summer.
