    4_2917411De’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.”

    Fox indicated during a video interview with Jonathan Givony of DraftExpress.com that he wouldn’t mind playing alongside other elite guards, like Malik Monk, in college to advance their NBA prospects. Fox and Monk visited Kansas and Kentucky together.

    Fox is the projected No. 6 pick in the 2017 NBA Draft by DraftExpress.com, while Monk is projected at No. 7.

    Monk has yet to name an announcement date.
