Rose Will Sign Early

Three weeks and one day until signing day.

Derrick Rose was in Memphis for Midnight Madness and now the 6-3 Simeon All-American is looking at his options.

One of Rose’s three older brothers, Reggie, who was a standout playerr at Hubbard, said that Derrick will sign early. The early signing perriod for basketball starts Nov. 8.

‘‘It is up to Derrick,” Reggie said. ‘‘It is his decision. I think he will probably have a press conference [to announce his decision].”

Some sources say that Derrick will pick Memphis or Indiana. Other insist the DePaul is still a player. But Kansas, which was also in his Final Four seems to be out of the picture, at least for now.
