One of the top college basketball recruits in the country announced his commitment today. To many, it's a surprising one.

Charles Bassey, a five-star big man, is headed to Western Kentucky. Yes, Western Kentucky.

The talented prospect will be re-classifying into the 2018 class. He'll be playing for WKU in 2018-19.

Jon Rothstein first reported the news.

Bassey's commitment has reportedly been in the works for a while - he's reportedly already on campus - but still, a five-star prospect deciding to play for Western Kentucky is always going to be surprising.

Good for Western Kentucky. Massey could end up being one of the top picks in the 2019 NBA Draft.
