The 2016 recruiting class has made their decisions pretty quickly for the most part on where they intend to play their college basketball. This class has more early commitments than any class in a long time and because of that only 24 of ESPN's top 100 prospects are still on the board.  Two of those 24 players that have yet to make a decision are De'Aaron Fox and Malik Monk and they are strongly considering teaming up and going to the same school, according to Adam Zagoria of

Monk is a 6 foot-3 shooting guard from Bentonville, Arkansas that is ranked as the number five overall prospect in the 2016 class while Fox is a 6 foot-3 point guard from Katy, Texas who is ranked as the number seven overall player in the class. Both players are five-star recruits who are expected to be lottery picks in the 2017 NBA Draft and if they were to commit to the same school that schools class would shoot up to the top of the rankings.

Both players have said that they think teaming up is possible but that is not definite. The two players only have two of the same schools on their lists and they are Kentucky and Kansas. As of right now Monk seems to have his list down to two schools and it is pretty even between Kentucky and Arkansas for him, according to 247 Sports. Monk may decide to stay home and play against Kentucky or he could decide to join Big Blue Nation.

As for Fox he has officially cut his list down to five schools but all signs point to him committing to Kentucky. Unlike Monk, Fox does not have a home town school on his list and John Calipari has recruited the point guard extremely hard.

Nothing is official yet with either of these two players but it seems like the decision will ultimately come down to Monk. Kansas remains an option with an outside chance for both players but it seems likely that if these two players team up it will be as Wildcats. The interesting part of this is the fact that Monk's second school is Kentucky's SEC rival, Arkansas, so if he chooses the Razorbacks he will be playing against his good friend.

No timetable is set for either player to make their official decisions but they did both officially visit Kentucky last weekend together. Fox has no more visits scheduled but Monk has a visit scheduled to Arkansas on Halloween weekend and that could be the deciding factor on if these two elite recruits will team up together for 2016.
