Just a few days after trimming his list of schools down to five, New York native Jordan Riley (Brentwood, N.Y./Brentwood) will be making his college decision on Friday, per New York Post’s Zach Braziller.

Riley will be deciding between St. John’s, Georgetown, UConn, Florida State, and Kansas in a ceremony at Brentwood High School’s gymnasium. It is set to begin at 10 a.m.

The 6-foot-4, 185-pound guard enjoyed a great junior season, where he was named the Suffolk County Player of the Year by Newsday after averaging 23 points, 12 rebounds, and four assists per game. He was a catalyst in Brentwood’s run to the Suffolk County Class AA crown. The Indians went 20-1 and were poised for a solid run through the state tournament, until the season was cancelled because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Many believe that if Riley had an AAU season, he would’ve broken out and received a lot more attention and offers. He’s currently unranked by 247 sports and not in the ESPN Top 100 for the class of 2021. On Rivals.com, he’s considered a three-star prospect.

Despite the lack of an AAU season, he did manage to grab over a dozen Division I offers. Aside from his final five list, he also received offers from DePaul, Iona, Georgia, Wake Forest, Kansas State, Pitt, Seton Hall, Hofstra, Virginia Tech, Rutgers, and Stony Brook.

With three-star guard Tyler Beard (Chicago, Ill./Hargrave Military Academy) reclassifying and delaying his enrollment by one year, the Hoyas are looking for their second commit for the class of 2021. Meanwhile, for UConn and St. John’s, they’re still looking to get on the board and secure their first commitment for 2021.
