    Kentucky is no longer involved with 2020 Prolific Prep (CA) combo guard Jalen Green and the two have parted ways, a source told ZAGSBLOG.

    The 6-foot-6 Green is coming off an official visit to Oregon this past weekend, and is also considering Auburn and Memphis. Auburn was expected to have two assistant coaches in on Monday for Green.

    Green is slated to visit Auburn (Sept. 26) for the Mississippi State football game and Memphis (Oct. 2). His visit to Kentucky for Oct. 16 is now off.

    Kentucky has four commits for 2020 in power forward Lance Ware and guards/wings B.J. Boston, Terrence Clarke and Cam’ Ron Fletcher. Ware and Clarke committed last week.

    The Wildcats are still looking for a point guard and appear to be focusing on 6-7 Montverde (FL) Academy floor general Cade Cunningham, the No. 2 player in the Class of 2020.

    Another option is Class of 2021 Mater Dei (CA) point guard Devin Askew, who would have to reclassify. Louisville and Villanova are also among those involved for Askew.

    On Monday, the Kentucky staff is out East, with head coach John Calipari and Kenny Payne expected to see Class of 2021 forward Jonathan Kuminga at The Patrick School (N.J.) and Tony Barbee set to see ’21 forward A.J. Griffin at Stepinac (N.Y.).
