Durant, a senior-to-be at Oak Hill, is young for his grade classification. The 6-foot-9 small forward would have to spend three seasons in college should the NBA adopt a 20-year old age limit without exceptions. Three seasons from an elite player of Durant's caliber would go a long way toward helping a program build up its forces for a title run.
Now the big news:
"We're making a decision tomorrow," Pratt said Wednesday morning. "It'll be sometime tomorrow afternoon, probably 3:30 or 4. We're not doing a press conference."
Durant, Scout.com's No. 2 prospect in the Class of 2006, visited each of the three schools officially.
"After going on all three visits and meeting as a family, we decided at this time that his mind was made up and this is where he wants to go," Pratt said of the choice without revealing the winner. "He wants to concentrate on his academics and his last high school season."
