"The phone has been ringing off the hook today," Poole told Scout.com. "People have been calling and calling."
Poole, a highly touted 6-foot-5 small forward, recently narrowed his list of schools to Kentucky and South Carolina. The plan was to announce his college choice this week, and that is still the goal.
"I've been getting this stuff all day." Poole said referencing rumors about him making a commitment. "I haven't even made my decision yet at this time. I haven't sat down with my parents yet."
"I will be making [my decision] by the end of the day. I will be making it soon."
Poole, who checks in at No. 58 overall by Scout.com, said he will announce his college decision on national television on Thursday at 5:00 ET.
