Future 150’s Ari Rosenfeld says it will be close to 9:30-10, and he will also be live streaming the announcement. Here it is:

A 5-11 point guard from Neumann Goretti High School in Philadelphia (PA), Green has been heavily interested in Villanova, Syracuse, Kentucky, Temple, and Duke.
The Blue Devils and Wildcats offered Green over the summer, but it’s been John Calipari and UK who’ve continued to push heavily-favored Strauss for a commitment.
Green made his decision prior to Wednesday’s deadline to sign a national letter of intent for the early signing period, so whatever the call is has already been made. It’s now just a matter of Green making it public.
The Cuse appeared to have locked this one up after Green visited them last weekend, but UK had made a strong late push that has many thinking Calipari may have pulled this one off.
It certainly helps that Green took in UK’s win over Michigan State on Tuesday, which went very well by all accounts.
