Mitch McGary says he'll decide next week; Michigan in his top three
After staying quiet for a few weeks, consensus top-five national power forward prospect Mitch McGary has broken his silence.
He says he'll announce his college commitment next week, and the Michigan basketball program is on his short list.
"I can honestly say that right now I don't know where I"m going so anything you read that says I do isn't true," McGary wrote on his personal ESPN.com high school basketball blog Thursday. "At this point, I'm focusing on Florida, Duke and Michigan."
The 6-foot-10, 250-pound McGary is preparing for his final prep season at Brewster Academy in New Hampshire, and began his round of official visits in September with a trip to Ann Arbor for the Michigan football team's season-opener against Western Michigan.
McGary writes in his blog that the whole process has been "really stressful" and "it's been hard on my family."
He says he took some time to just be with family and friends to clear his head, and he says he's ready to make his choice.
McGary also said that previous candidates to land his services, North Carolina and Maryland, are now off his list. He also added that he intends to make his decision known through his personal ESPN blog.
"Obviously, I've got some great options," McGary wrote. "But this next week I'll really be doing a lot of thinking about what the perfect situation for me will be."
