The No. 1 wide receiver in the 2020 recruiting class narrowed down his decision to just five teams late last week. In his announcement, five-star wideout Julian Fleming revealed when he plans to make his decision.
The schools won’t have to wait long for his commitment. Fleming revealed he plans to announce his commitment on May 31 – just over two weeks from today.
His college list is down to five programs: Alabama, Clemson, Georgia, Ohio State, and Penn State.
The Nittany Lions were the heavy favorite to land the top player from the state of Pennsylvania earlier in his recruitment. However, over the past few weeks, one program has made up significant ground and is now the favorite to take home the top receiver in the class.

Ohio State has emerged as the favorite, per 247Sports’ Crystal Ball Predictions.
The Buckeyes received 61-percent of predictions while the Nittany Lions received 39-percent.
The Catawissa, Pennsylvania native could spurn his in-state team and commit to the dominant power in the conference. Also in consideration for Fleming is Clemson – where Dabo Swinney and company have a shot at a historically great recruiting class.
Fleming would be Clemson’s fifth five-star recruit in the class and the Tigers would hold three players at the top of their position.
