Tyreke's decision awaits

"Uncommitted senior Tyreke Evans, ranked No. 4 in the current ESPN 150, will make his decision on April 16, the first day of the spring signing period, reports the Philadelphia Inquirer. Evans will announce his choice at a press conference to be carried live on ESPN. The schools involved are Memphis, Louisville, Villanova, Connecticut and Texas and the 6-foot-6 guard says he is not leaning towards any one program. "I will look at everything," Evans said."

Maybe this run in the tournament will sway Tyreke's decision in Villanova's favor. This run may also affect Scottie Reynolds' NBA draft status. Scottie's stock is rising as Villanova goes deeper in the tournament. Last year Reynolds stated that he plans to stay four years, but things change, especially when there's millions of dollars on the line. If Reynolds were to make the jump to the NBA, Tyreke would probably be more likely to choose Villanova, where he could be the star guard in his hometown. If Reynolds stays in college, Evans may see himself as the missing piece to help Villanova win a title next year.
