Five-star power forward PJ Washington is one of two or three recruits I think are a lock to come to Kentucky, which makes the news I’m about to share very welcome. According to Ben Roberts, Washington will announce his decision Thursday at 6 p.m. during ESPNU’s Signing Day Special. Washington is down to Kentucky, North Carolina, and UNLV, the latter of which he officially visited this weekend, but all signs continue to point to him being a Cat.

Also announcing on Thursday (albeit not on the Signing Day Special): big man Nick Richards and shooting guard John Petty. Combo guard Shai Alexander is also expected to make a decision after visiting Kentucky this past weekend, and there are rumors Trae Young could announce early too.
Things are about to get crazy…
