Napa (Calif.) Prolific Prep five-star guard Jalen Green is the top uncommitted recruit in the 2020 class. Green is the No. 3 overall senior according to 247Sports' Composite Rankings.

As of now, Green has taken all five of his allotted official visits. This fall, he checked out Memphis, Oregon, USC, Auburn and Florida State. Now, all that's left is to make a decision.

This afternoon, 247Sports' Director of Basketball Scouting Jerry Meyer put in a Crystal Ball prediction for Green. Now, the 247Sports Crystal Ball isn't perfect, but when someone like Meyer puts in a pick for a prospect, they don't do so lightly.

Right now, Meyer projects Green will wind up with Auburn. If he picks AU, Green would be the second five-star recruit to sign with the Tigers, joining Powder Springs (Ga.) McEachern point guard Sharife Cooper.

Auburn's recruiting class currently ranks fifth in the SEC and 18th nationally.

The 6-foot-5, 170-pound Green is the No. 2 combo guard in his class, behind No. 1 overall recruit Cade Cunningham.

Green's 247Sports scouting report compares him to former Indiana star and Indiana Pacers standout Victor Oladipo and projects he will eventually be a first-round NBA Draft pick.
