Five-star combo guard Malik Newman will reveal his college decision Friday at 1 p.m., and live video of the announcement will be available online.
Clarionledger.com will have a live stream of Newman’s announcement, which will be made from a “closed setting,” according to Clarion-Ledger reporter Courtney Cronin, who has been documenting Newman’s recruitment for more than a year as part of a multi-episode web series.
That means the announcement will not be made from his high school.
Newman — a 6-foot-3 prospect from Jackson, Miss. — is still listing UK, Kansas, Mississippi State, Mississippi, LSU and N.C. State as possible destinations. Many recruiting analysts now predict that his recruitment will come down to UK and Mississippi State.
ESPN ranks Newman as the No. 10 overall prospect in the class of 2015.
