Josh Jackson, a 6-foot-7 senior shooting guard from Prolific Prep in Napa, Calif., who will play in today’s Nike Hoops Summit (2 p.m., ESPN2) in Portland, tells USA Today he will announce for either Kansas University, Michigan State or Arizona at a yet-to-be-determined time on Monday.
“It’ll be at my house (in Detroit). I wanted my family around and I’m just ready to do it,” Jackson, the No. 1-rated player in the recruiting class of 2016 said Friday, offering no other details.
By the way, he later told reporters the decision could come Wednesday, the first day of the month-long signing period.
Diallo likely off to NBA: KU coach Bill Self, who was a featured speaker Friday at a coaching clinic at Roselle (N.J.) Catholic High School, reiterated his previous statements that freshman Cheick Diallo will not return to college for a sophomore season.
Self told Zagsblog.com’s Adam Zagoria that Diallo likely will sign with an agent next week, but that’s not 100 percent confirmed yet. To this point, the 6-9 Diallo has said he’s entering the draft, but has not inked with an agent.
“I don’t anticipate him (Diallo) coming back,” Self told the Journal-World on Friday.
