Latavious Williams, the No. 6 power forward in the nation, will announce his college choice Monday during a press conference.
Williams will choose from among Memphis, Georgetown and Kansas State, said his high school coach, Carlos Wilson.
“I’m ready to get it over with,” Williams, a 6-foot-7, 195-pound wing forward, told Jerry Meyer of Rivals.com. “Then I can get some guidance getting through the Clearinghouse.”
Memphis coach Josh Pastner recently visited with Williams, and assistant coaches from Georgetown and Kansas State have also come there, Rivals reported.
Wilson previously said that Europe might also be an option if Williams doesn’t qualify academically.
“If he didn’t qualify I’m thinking he would maybe have to look at some junior college or possibly some European situations,” Wilson said.
“I think Europe is a viable option in his mind. I really do think there’s a possibility that he would look into playing overseas if he didn’t qualify. It just depends.”
