The news broke first on Twitter.

Hailing from Rolling Meadows, Illinois, Christie is a five-star target coming in at No. 11 nationally according to the 247Sports Composite.
The 6-foot-6 guard is the top-ranked player in the state of Illinois.
Christie will need to get stronger, but he is already a very good shooter and more than capable off the bounce.
247Sports’ Brian Snow provides this assessment on Christie’s profile page there:
“He has good size and length, and while he needs to get stronger, that will come in time. Right now is at his best as a shooter, where his height and long arms allow him to shoot over nearly every defender. But if a bigger player is on him, he is also athletic enough and good enough with the dribble to go past them. A highly skilled prospect who can play anywhere on the perimeter. Hard worker who shows tremendous IQ on the court. Has the making of being an impact wing at the college level and a first-round NBA draft choice.”
Christie has averaged 16.7 points per game and shot 44 percent from three-point range playing for the Illinois Woles on the Under Armour circuit this spring.
For his sophomore season at Rolling Meadows, Christie averaged 27 points and 11 rebounds, scored 30 or more points in five straight games, and had a 51 point performance.
Christie also holds offers from other power five programs such as Illinois, Iowa, Michigan State, Ohio State, Purdue, Villanova, and Virginia, and he has interest from many of the other top programs in the country.
