R.J. Barrett’s highly-anticipated decision is coming up in less than a week, and it will be televised to those in his native Canada.
About a month ago, Barrett announced that his decision is set for November 10.
That date has been confirmed, and we’ve learned more about the event, which will be broadcast by TSN in Canada.
The network is going to make a two-day event out of Barrett’s big choice. From TSN:
Canadian high school basketball star prospect R.J. Barrett will reveal his highly anticipated 2018-19 college announcement on Friday, Nov. 10 at Lionhead Golf & Conference Centre in Brampton, Ont., and TSN provides fans exclusive live coverage of the announcement during the 6 p.m. ET edition of SPORTSCENTRE.
Live on-site at the Lionhead Golf & Conference Centre, Nabil Karim hosts Friday’s special SPORTSCENTRE broadcast alongside NBA ON TSN analyst Leo Rautins who breaks down what makes Barrett such a highly touted prospect, and Kayla Grey who delivers interviews for TSN.ca.
SPORTSCENTRE primes fans for the announcement on Thursday, Nov. 9 with a special feature delivering exclusive access to the Barrett family in Florida, where the bourgeoning star is currently playing high school basketball.
Duke, Kentucky, and Oregon are the finalists for the five-star wing, and No. 1 recruit in the sport. The Blue Devils are the solid favorites, at least per 247Sports’ crystal ball. He has 82-percent of the predictions over there, with Kentucky at 12-percent, and six-percent registered as “cloudy.”
Arizona, Kansas, Louisville, Miami, Michigan, Missouri, and UCLA are among the other schools to offer Barrett.
