Chalmers Decision On The Horizon

One of the nation's elite point guards is going to make his decision later in the week. Anchorage (Alaska) Bartlett junior Mario Chalmers will decide on Friday.

On Friday, one of the nation's very best point guards will cast his lot with either Mario Chalmers will have a 7 pm ET press conference at the school.

Chalmers, a 6-1 point guard, will likely open up the summer as the top ranked point guard according to He recently conducted a visit to Kansas last weekend and visited Arizona earlier.

"He's looking for a place he can go in and basically have an immediate impact," Ron Chalmers said. "Both schools offer that opportunity. They're similar in a lot of ways. He's looking for chemistry with the players and a good family atmosphere and he loved the history of the programs."

Though his son is down to a pair, Ron doesn't know which school it will be, but he's got his son working on some things to prepare for the decision.

"I think probably in his mind he does [know his choice] but I won't let him tell me because I don't want to know until Thursday night. Right now he's working on a pro and con list and he's giving me that tomorrow. I want him to tell me on Thursday night before he does the press conference on Friday. He loves both programs."

Rest assured, both programs love Mario Chalmers too. It's just a matter of days before love is in the air in either Tucson or Lawrence.

CAT TRACKS' ANALYSIS: For weeks our sources have been saying Arizona is the team to beat, and they still say that. However, other analysts have been hearing that it is now KU that leads. Neither program will have to wait very long, but the next few days could be agonizing for the teams. Chalmers is that good.
