Southern Will Announce At Press Conference

Josh Southern is ready to announce his college decision. The 6-9 center will make his commitment public on Tuesday. DeaconSports caught up with Southern to get the scoop on his upcoming announcement.

Josh Southern has his decision made, but he won't announce his college choice until tomorrow at noon. The 6-9, 250-pound C will make his commitment public at a press conference on Saginaw (MI) High's campus.

"I have it down to four schools - BC, Kentucky, Tennesse and Wake," Southern said Monday afternoon.

Southern said playing time and his comfortable level with the program were the biggest factors when he made his final decision. The 4-star recruit went through his final four and explained what he likes about each:

"I like the coaching staff, environment, and the conference they play in the ACC," he said about Boston College. "It's a nice school in general."

"Kentucky has been wonderful," Southern said. "Their coaching staff is down to earth and Kentucky by its self, speaks for itself."

"Same thing with Tennesee, their coaching staff is wonderful. Coach Pearl has turned the program around the past few years and is bringing in high quality guys."

"Wake is basically the same thing. It's an all around good school."

Southern took visits to Boston College, Tennessee and Kentucky. While he didn't visit Wake Forest he said that he has heard good things about their campus and is "going off of word."

The press conference will take place Tuesday at noon.
