BREAKING NEWS: Jeremy Hollowell sets decision timetable

Just minutes ago, a tweet straight from Jeremy Hollowell (2012 SF - Indianapolis) has revealed the new timetable for his college decision:
"Talkin it over with my mom: I will be making my college decision before the start of AAU season"
This means that Hollowell's decision could be made in the next couple weeks. There was really no set timetable prior to today, so this is a big development. Many recruiting experts have named Indiana, Ohio State and Purdue as the leaders for Hollowell's services, but recently there has been some buzz that the Hoosiers are the clear leader. Another tweet a couple of months ago from Jeremy stated that his mom's favorite school was becoming his favorite. All signs point to that school being Indiana, as Jeremy's mother has had many favorable things to say about the staff and school and even took a visit to Bloomington without her son to check things out. We also know that the Boilermakers have yet to offer Jeremy a scholarship, so the odds of him committing to Purdue at this point are highly unlikely.
Rivals.com currently ranks Jeremy as the nations 39th best prospect in the class of 2012, and the 9th best small forward in that group. They also list scholarship offers from Cincinnati, Iowa, Illinois, Tennessee and Xavier. Tom Crean has done an amazing job keeping the top talent in the state of Indiana and landing Hollowell would all but guarantee the Hoosiers the #1 recruiting class in the nation.

AAU basketball usually gets rolling around April so hopefully we will have some news to report for you sooner rather than later. I am sure Hoosier fans are excited to see which school Jeremy chooses and how that decision will affect the recruitment of fellow 2012 in-state stud Gary Harris.
