There will be no 11th hour decision for 6-5 Stacey Poole of Jacksonville, FL. His decision has been made. Poole will announce for either USC or Kentucky Thursday afternoon at 5:30. He will deliver the news publicly thru a phone interview on ESPNU.
Poole said Wednesday night he has not yet informed the schools of his decision. He will do that sometime Thursday. He said his parents talked on the phone Thursday with USC coaches. He did not talk to any coaches Thursday.
Poole said he's satisfied with his decision but it was not easy to make. "It was very tough, very difficult," Poole said. "I couldn't have gone wrong either way. It was a win-win for me."
