Mercedes Russell, the No. 1 ranked prospect in the Class of 2013, will announce her college choice on Tuesday.
The 6-foot-5 center from Springfield (Ore.) High is choosing between Tennessee and Louisville and will declare her intentions at 5:30 p.m. Eastern time, Springfield coach Bill Wagner said Saturday.
The date and time apparently were determined before Russell left for her official visit to Louisville this weekend. Russell visited Tennessee last weekend.
Meanwhile, recruit Jannah Tucker can be counted again as a Lady Vols commitment, her father, Robert, said in a text message. The 6-foot guard from Randallstown, Md., who committed in June, reopened her recruitment for a day last week. Robert Tucker blamed himself for the about-face, saying he overreacted to "blatantly false and misleading information" and vowed to fix things with UT.
"Jannah is staying at Tennessee and is excited and knows it's the best place for her," he said.
