De’Aaron Fox, the No. 1 point guard in the Class of 2016, will announce his college choice on Thursday at 6 ET on ESPNU’s Recruiting Nation.
Fox, who has drawn comparisons to Washington Wizards guard John Wall, is considering Kentucky, Kansas, LSU and Louisville, with Kentucky the favorite to land the talented guard.
“With the ball in his hand, Fox has blazing speed with the ability to put pressure on opponents,” ESPN’s Paul Biancardi said. “Over the summer, Fox found the balance between scoring and distributing, elevating his performance to an elite level. More impressively, he then separated himself with his defensive prowess. Because of his outstanding play on both sides of the ball, he ascended into the ESPN 100 top 10 as the No. 7 overall player and the nation’s second ranked guard.”
