A decision from VJ Edgecombe is coming soon. How soon remains a mystery, but we now have somewhat of a timeline.

During Friday’s City Of Palms event, Edgecombe said he plans to announce a decision before the high school basketball season ends.

“This season, that’s all I’m gonna tell you. This season, that’s all I got for y’all,” Edgecombe said in an interview with Paul Biancardi via Adam Zagoria.

Edgecombe also announced he is down to five schools: The Kentucky Wildcats, Duke Blue Devils, Baylor Bears, Florida Gators, and St. John’s Red Storm. It’s widely believed to be a battle between the Blue Devils and the Wildcats.

As for recruiting predictions, only three have been logged, and they’re at 247 Sports, but they came in November. Kentucky has been picking up a lot of steam since then, so it will be interesting to see how this one plays out as we hit the home stretch.

If the Cats do land Edgecombe, they’ll likely overtake Duke to have the No. 1 class in 2024, especially after landing Billy Richmond.
