Jarnell Stokes will announce Thursday

Despite reports on Tuesday that power forward Jarnell Stokes (Memphis, Tenn./Southwind H.S.) would decide his college plans next Monday, the Memphis Commercial Appeal is reporting that he will now announce where he will go on Thursday at 7:30 p.m. ET.

While there was speculation Stokes would enroll early and be eligible to play this year, that seems to be confirmed as he has already graduated from Southwind High School and plans on attending a school in January.

Those vying for his services include Memphis, Arkansas, Connecticut, Florida, Kentucky and Tennessee.
