Shake Milton, a 2015 guard from Owasso, Okla., will announce his decision at 4:30 p.m. EST on Wednesday afternoon. This primer should get you ready.

THE BASICS: Milton is a 6-foot-4, 185-pound combo guard. He is regarded as a four-star prospect by and is the 34th-ranked shooting guard in the class. He's a versatile guard who can score in a variety of ways and defend multiple positions.

Milton was the Gatorade Player of the Year in the state of Oklahoma last year after averaging 28.0 points, 5.9 rebounds and 3.9 assists per game.

THE SUITORS: Milton will choose between Indiana, SMU and Oklahoma. He took official visits to all three schools, most recently to Indiana in late September.

THE RECRUITMENT: Indiana began recruiting Milton and MOKAN Elite teammate Juwan Morgan in June. Assistant coach Steve McClain had success recruiting the MOKAN Elite program while the head coach at Colorado, so was initial link from the Indiana side. Morgan committed to the Hoosiers in September.

Indiana got Milton on campus for an unofficial visit over the summer, and he returned for his official visit the last weekend in September.

THE DECISION: This one is hard to call. Our Brian Snow spoke to a source who said Milton has been all over the place with his decision and has flipped back and forth a few times. My prediction is SMU, but again, it's up in the air and could really go any of the three ways. I do believe Indiana is the underdog at this point, though.

THE AFTERMATH: If Milton commits to Indiana, he would become the third commit in the class, joining Morgan and forward Ogugua "O.G." Anunoby, who committed on Tuesday. Milton would round out IU's class and give Tom Crean and big, talented guard to work with.

If Milton chooses elsewhere, the Hoosiers would be OK because of the number of elite guards they already have on the roster. Yogi Ferrell, James Blackmon Jr., Robert Johnson, Stanford Robinson and others are capable guards who figure to still be on campus 12 months from now. Top Stories
