UK recruit and Madison Central senior basketball player Dominique Hawkins will announce his college decision Wednesday at 8 a.m. at his school gym.

Hawkins, who was named Kentucky Mr. Basketball last week, has said that he will not accept a walk-on position at any school.

UK head coach John Calipari watched several of Madison Central’s games in the Sweet 16 at Rupp Arena last month, where Hawkins won Tournament MVP after his team’s state championship win.

A former high school teammate of Hawkins, John O’Bryan, tweeted two weeks ago that Hawkins would sign with UK that Friday, but that never occurred.

Hawkins would potentially become Calipari’s eighth commitment in the 2013 class, joining the No. 1 class in the country.
