Since returning from his visit to Louisville Sunday night, Lumpkin has avoided speaking with the media about that visit and his recruitment. Lumpkin's father, Rick Lumpkin, Sr. said Wednesday night that his son will announce his college decision Thursday after receiving a visit from either one of Kentucky's or Louisville's coaches. Lumpkin wouldn't reveal which program was sending a coach to meet with his son when asked.
"I've shut Ricky down from speaking with the media," Ricky Lumpkin, Sr. told said. "He has some unfinished business to take care of."
Lumpkin said he didn't want his son to comment on his recruitment until each school involved had been apprised of Lumpkin's decision.
"If he's planning on changing his mind I don't want to have the (Kentucky) coaches hearing about it second hand," Lumpkin, Sr. said.
