While Welsh, a 7-footer out of Los Angeles (Calif.) Loyola, hasn't set up a decision date or even given a timetable, most expect him to make his college choice and sign during the early period.
Loyola coach Jamal Adams said Welsh is hoping to announce soon.
"He's still mulling over the decision," Adams informed Scout.com. "He's hoping to make it sooner verse later and then make the appropriate announcement. It's been tough."
"He's getting closer," he added.
Welsh, a four-star recruit, is regarded as the No. 6 center in the 2014 class.
