Madison Central star Dominique Hawkins is back from spring break and is getting ready to announce his college decision. According to his coach, Allen Feldhaus, Jr., Hawkins will announce his decision in a press conference sometime this week, likely Wednesday or Thursday.
Hawkins has been waiting on a scholarship offer from Calipari for the past few weeks. Over the weekend, he said that as soon as he gets the call from Cal offering him one, he’ll accept. Feldhaus Jr. told Larry Vaught that he thinks Hawkins belongs at UK:
“I know the type of kid he is. He is the most humble young man I have ever coached. He is always team first, self second. When we were playing teams it was obvious we were better than, the deferred to teammates. When the big lights came on, that’s when he was at his best. Coach Calipari liked his toughness, but he is pretty explosive and has game in him. Calipari sees a lot of (current NBA guard Eric) Bledsoe in him because he is so strong and physical.”
