Hansbrough inches closer to decision

We're getting closer to learning the fate of Poplar Bluff (Mo.) High standout Tyler Hansbrough. The 6-foot-9 power forward says a decision is coming soon.

There really isn't much to report back on the status of Tyler Hansbrough. The Poplar Bluff standout says he's still contemplating Missouri, Kentucky, Kansas and North Carolina. After recently returning from a trip to the islands, Hansbrough decided that the time for a decision is very near. "I'm looking to make my decision soon," Hansbrough said. "Probably in the next two weeks."

Like most kids his age, the process has dragged on enough and it's time to focus on other matters. "First of all, the main reason I'm doing it is to concentrate on my senior year and get everything right. I want to put all this stuff to the side so I can improve my gradework."

Though Hansbrough won't say where he's leaning – and still publicly claims to not know exactly which school he'll pick – he's readying for the decision.

"How I'm going to pick my college will be I'll pick the college that will develop me the best and who I'm the most comfortable with."

Crank up the rumor mill and keep the speculating coming because in the near future all of the guess work will be eliminated.
