Alabama Crimson Tide and Oregon Ducks continue to make strong push for 2020 5-star Nimari Burnett

The Alabama Crimson Tide and Oregon Ducks continue to pursue 2020 5-star guard Nimari Burnett, as coaches from both programs are set to check in on the elite prospect this weekend, according to Jake Weingarten of Stockrisers.

The 6-3 combo guard, who attends Prolific Prep in California, is certainly a top priority for both Alabama and Oregon as he gets closer to making his decision.

Michigan and Texas Tech are the other two schools in his final four, with Burnett taking an official visit with the Ducks last week.

He is rated as the No. 5 combo guard and No. 22 player overall in the 2020 class, according to 247Sports.

No matter which school he chooses, he’ll likely make a huge impact right away due to his excellent playmaking ability.

The Tide will tip off the new season on Nov. 5 against Penn, while the Ducks will square off against Fresno State.
