John Petty has now set his decision day for Nov. 10, according to Garrett Tucker:
2017 wing John Petty will not visit Kentucky this weekend as originally planned. He has set his commitment date for Nov. 10th— Garrett Tucker (@GTuckerHoops) October 26, 2016
Petty will announce his college choice at halftime (Nov. 10) of Jemison's first home game against Huntsville High— Garrett Tucker (@GTuckerHoops) October 26, 2016
This would come during the early signing period, which is expected to include a signature from Petty to whichever school he picks.
It looks like John Petty won't be visiting the Kentucky Wildcats this weekend.
According to ESPN's Jeff Borzello, Petty is looking to reschedule his official visit with UK, which was originally set to take place the weekend of Oct. 28.

Down to Alabama and UK.
Will sign early.
It doesn't sound like this is bad news for UK since Petty already has another date planned for his visit. He's expected to commit and sign with a school soon after he visits UK.
It's usually good news when a school gets the final visit with a recruit before he makes his decision, and all signs continue to point towards the Wildcats being the pick here. Alabama is still in the running, but UK should be the pick as long as they accept his commitment this fall, even though they're recruiting a host of guards/wings in 2017.
