All-American guard Malik Hairston of Renaissance High School in Detroit, Mich., told OUInsider.com tonight that he is still trying to make up his mind on where he will play his college basketball.
"At this point nothing has changed for me as far as picking a school," said Hariston from his home in Detroit. "I need to sit down one more time with my parents and my coach to see if I can reach a decision. It may take two more times. Actually, I am going to take as many times as I need to make the right decision."
Malik has always kept his hand close to his chest as to who is really among the finalist for his decision, so I asked him what I should tell the OU fans about his remaining interest in the Sooners.
"Tell them that OU is still in it and I am still considering OU," said Hariston, who is down to OU, Michigan, Ohio State, UCLA and Kansas. "OU has a lot of great points, but all the programs do. Yes, tell them that I am still considering OU."
So, the Hariston sweepstakes head down the stretch and the OU card is still on the table. He is still talking to Oklahoma every day and he hasn't told the Sooners they are out of it.
