UPDATE 3

Jaden Hardy will now be announcing his decision on Saturday at 9:30 pm ET.


UPDATE 2

Well, it looks like Jaden Hardy’s decision will come at 3 am ET, which is 12 am in Nevada where he currently lives.

I fully expect the G-League to be Hardy’s decision, so do yourself a favor and sleep through this one.


UPDATE

Jaden Hardy has zeroed in on May 15th as the day he’ll announce his decision, per Tipton Edits.

The expectation remains that Hardy will go pro.


The best remaining player in the class of 2021 is reportedly aiming to make his decision in two weeks.

Jaden Hardy, who is still considering the Kentucky Wildcats, made the announcement on Instagram live.

Hardy is the No. 2 overall player in the class of 2021 and is seen as the best scorer in his class, and potentially all of high school hoops.

However, all signs point towards the G-League for Hardy. Every major recruiting expert has put in their crystal ball to the pro-route for Hardy.

At one point, way back in a normal life in 2019, Hardy was seen as a lock to Kentucky. Even going as far as attending a Kentucky practice when the Wildcats made their trip to Las Vegas in December of 2019.

Since then, the UK-Hardy connection has faded, as the G-League and UCLA buzz has picked up. If Hardy does not decide to go the pro route, UCLA is right in the thick of things.

Hardy’s main recruiter at Kentucky was Joel Justus, so while Kentucky does remain as an option, It seems very unlikely that Hardy will be coming to Lexington to play his collegiate ball, if he plays college ball at all.
