2018 Mississippi Big Javian Fleming Names Final Five

Canton (MS) High Javian Fleming announced his final five schools on Friday via his Twitter account. The 6-foot-9 center will move forward with Texas A&M, TCU, Alabama, Georgetown and Iowa State.

“First I’d like to thank God for the opportunities he gave to me to do with this ball, without Him I wouldn’t be here,” Fleming said in a statement released via Twitter. “Also like to thank my mom, family and coaches for supporting me through this recruiting process.

“I am very grateful and humble to receive these 25 Division 1 scholarship (offers) that I have, but it is now time to cut them down,” Fleming continued. “With all the evaluating, researching and talking with my family and coaches… I’ve chosen my last five schools to be: Alabama, Georgetown, Iowa State, TCU, Texas A&M.”

Fleming broke down each of his five finalist for D1Vision:

Alabama: “Just the way the program is changing and getting better year by year. Plus the relationship with the coaching staff.”

Georgetown: “Obviously Patrick Ewing is the Head Coach now, and that wouldn’t be bad learning from a Hall of Fame big man. But Georgetown has been a good basketball school, and he just stuck out to me with our talks.”

Iowa State: “They’re one of the best programs around in one of the best conferences. But me, Coach (Steve) Prohm and Coach (William) Small have built a good relationship and talked about the program.”

TCU: “Just the way they share the ball and use their bigs. The coaches down there love my game and feel for it!”

Texas A&M: “Just love the way they throw the ball in the post and let them work.”

Fleming told D1Vision he will officially visit Alabama the weekend of September 29-31. As of now, no other officials have been scheduled.

Fleming is rated the number 233 overall player, the number 5 player in his state and the number 16 center in the country, per the industry-generated 247Sports Composite Rankings.

Alabama is the current 247Sports CrystalBall leader, owning 100% of the current votes.
