Hairston Decides On Wednesday
It's all over with Malik Hairston. Sort of.
The nation's top unsigned player will announce his college decision at a 4 pm Wednesday press conference at Detroit Renaissance.
"[Tuesday] I'm going to tell all the coaches but two," Hairston said. "I'm sure word will get around about what schools were eliminated."
Basically, Hairston is using the college basketball gossip line to let the country know which two schools are still in the running.
"It was a struggle but there was a lot of thinking that went into the decision." Hairston said that his family members were torn between two schools but they were able to reach common ground with one program.
If you thought Julius Hodge was an excellent poker player when he whipped Maryland, NC State and Syracuse fans into a frenzy think again. Hairston would take Hodge's money in a high stakes game of Texas Hold ‘Em. His decision will truly carry an element of surprise.
The decision of Malik Hairston will send a virtual dominoes effect into action. It has been no secret that Kansas has regarded Alex Galindo as enough of a high profile recruit to invite him for an official visit - all indications are that Alex had a wonderful time this past weekend during his visit. The question that Pittsburgh, Rutgers, and Georgetown (Alex visited the University yesterday) fans are asking is whether Kansas can add both Malik Hairston and Alex Galindo as part of the same class. Most likely, the answer to that question is no, which is what makes tomorrow's announcement of the nation's top unsigned player so critical to so many.
