It looks like Kevin Knox will make the call on Saturday, according to Jake Perper of Prep Sports Scouting:

Kevin Knox will end his recruitment this weekend, at least that’s what the hope is.

Knox’s father told Adam Zagoria that the plan if for the five-star wing to announce his decision sometime this weekend.

After initially saying it would happen between Thursday-Sunday, likely depending on a window on the ESPN networks, Kevin Knox Sr., said Thursday, “Expect this weekend to be the time.”

It remains unclear how Knox will announce. His father said they were working with ESPN on a possible window.

Knox originally said he would announced sometime between May 1-7, so it looks like he’s pushing it to the very end of that deadline. He’s set to make a decision between Duke, Kentucky, North Carolina, Florida State.

If I had to rank the schools from most to least likeliest to get Knox, it would go like this:

  1. Duke
  2. North Carolina
  3. Kentucky
  4. Florida State
  5. Missouri (reportedly eliminated last week)

John Calipari has made a strong push for Knox, but it looks like one of the ACC blue bloods will win out here.
