Atlanta Journal Constitution: Derrick Favors Set To Announce his College Choice
South Atlanta center Derrick Favors, the No. 1 basketball recruit in Georgia, will announce is college decision Wednesday at 6:30 p.m., according to his high school coach, Michael Reddick.
His finalists are Georgia Tech, Georgia and Memphis.
This is the first mention in the media I have heard where NC State is not in Favor’s list of finalists. There is some confusion, however, as to whether the Wolfpack is still in it with Favors, as Dave Telep writes on Scout.com
Interestingly Favors announcement will come thirty minutes prior to Georgia Tech playing Duke on ESPN.
