Will it be Memphis, Illinois or Indiana?
Sources close to Rose indicate that the decision could go either way. Here’s a breakdown of where the three schools stand.
Memphis: The clear leader. Memphis has been there from the beginning. Reggie Rose has seemed the most comfortable with Memphis, however, he has made it clear to all those around him that the decision is up to Derrick.
Illinois: Out of nowhere the Roses decided to visit Champaign last weekend. All indications are that things went well. However, it’s a lot of ground for Illinois to make up in a short amount of time. There are rumors that the Illinois coaching staff was encouraging Rose to take a little more time with his decision.
Indiana: Probably a distant third right now, but not out of the picture. All along it has seemed that Eric Gordon wanted to play with Rose in college more than Rose wanted to play with Gordon. Don’t overlook the fact that Gordon wasn’t considered the top player in the country until he played with Rose. Gordon, not Rose, benefited from the partnership.
So, which school do you think it will be?
