Five-star PG De'Aaron Fox to decide in early period

De'Aaron Fox, Scout's No. 1 rated point guard, will commit and announce his college choice during the early signing period.

Five-star point guard De'Aaron Fox will announce his college decision prior to the end of the initial signing period, which begins November 11th, he told Scout.

"It'll be before November 16th for sure," Fox said.

Fox, a 6-foot-4 guard, took his final official visit to Kentucky this past weekend. Fox visited Kansas the weekend prior and has also taken official visits to Louisville and LSU. Fox had originally scheduled an official visit to Arizona, but he cancelled that trip. 

Following a terrific spring and summer with the Houston Hoops, Fox jumped up to No. 4 overall and No. 1 at the point guard position in the 2016 players rankings.

Fox is a terrific point guard prospect because of his combination of size, skill, athleticism, improved play making and ability to consistently make shots from both mid-range and three. Fox is tracking as a potential elite defender, as he moves his feet incredibly well and takes pride in that end of the floor.
