We’ve been following five-star combo guard Malik Newman for a few years now. Today, Newman will announce his college decision and it’s down to Kentucky, Ole Miss, Kansas, LSU, Mississippi State and N.C. State. Mississippi State, his father’s alma mater, is the HEAVY favorite, but for the sake of “you never know,” we’re still going to watch.
Follow along as I bring you the latest buzz from Twitter, and watch the actual announcement at 1 p.m. ET on the Live Stream below:
1:13 p.m.: Malik Newman picks Mississippi State:
And he had a cowbell with him. That’s nice.
1:11 p.m.: I made the rookie mistake of refreshing the stream, which meant I had to listen to the Lowes commercial again. Currently buffering, but the inside of Malik’s jacket is orange:
1:08 p.m.: Oh boy, apparently this is going to be an entire show. The lady on the choppy screen just said Malik will come up “eventually.” The stream is so bad we may have to start captioning the best frozen moments, like this one:
12:59 p.m.: Clearly the live stream can’t handle KSR’s traffic. Buffering issues got me like:
No really. My feed has been stuck on that image for two minutes.
12:57 p.m.: Aaaand I just lost sound on the feed. Anyone else?
12:53 p.m.: I think this is Malik. If so, he’s having some real problems buttoning that jacket:
12:48 p.m.: The live stream is rolling and here’s the table. No hats…yet:
12:45 p.m.: Here’s the latest Crystal Ball predictions from 247 Spots, which pretty much confirm that Newman will pick Mississippi State here in about 15 minutes:
Regardless, we will see what happens.
