Kentucky's Mr. Basketball Set to Announce College Choice, with UK and WKU Possibilities
WKU is hoping to land the winner of this year’s Mr. Basketball award in Kentucky. Madison Central guard Dominique Hawkins will announce his college choice Wednesday morning during a school-wide assembly at the school’s gym.
Hawkins led Madison Central to this year’s Sweet 16 state championship, and has college offers from WKU, Purdue, South Carolina, Tennessee, and several other schools. Hawkins has said he wants to play at UK, and was waiting to hear if the school would offer him a basketball scholarship.
After Wednesday's announcement, Hawkins will help lead a team of Bluegrass State stars this weekend in the Ohio-Kentucky All-Star Game in northern Kentucky.
