At least four seniors plan to make their announcements in the next few days and there are bound to be more. Take a look at who they are and where they are considering.

Centralia (Ill.) 6-6, 215-pound scrappy power forward Matt Shaw will kick things off this afternoon when he chooses either Southern Illinois or St. Louis at a news conference. Then the fun begins.

Oregon native Maarty Leunen (No. 79,, a 6-8 forward from Redmund High (Ore.), will make his announcement at 6 p.m. and will make coaches at either Oregon, UCLA or Gonzaga happy.

Jason Rich (No. 39, will get it down tomorrow afternoon following school and will decide between Florida State and Kentucky while Lawrenceville (N.J.) forward Joakim Noah (No. 57,, whose stock may have improved as much as anyone's this past summer, will wait and pull the trigger on Saturday.

Noah plans to wait for his father, former tennis star Yannick Noah, to get into town before choosing between Florida, Maryland and Villanova. Joakim has said previously that the Gators were the favorite.
