Speaking with Cliff Alexander now about the "choosing between Illinois and DePaul" rumor. Says that it is "not true." @humblekid11— Taylor Rooks Sports (@ImTaylorRooks) November 4, 2013
Alexander also told Taylor Rooks that he will cut his list down to three schools before announcing on November 15.
So this week is already off to a crazy start. According to a tweet from the Illinois Prep Bulls-Eye Twitter account -- which is protected, and I don't follow, so I'm going off the hundred tweets others have made about it -- Cliff Alexander will choose between Illinois and....
Yeah, that's what they're reporting. No Kansas. Illinois or DePaul.
Per, @prepbullseye "when Cliff Alexander announces the final 2 caps on table will be Illinois & DePaul. That's "straight from the source.""— Dave Wischnowsky (@wischlist) November 4, 2013
Now, I should point out that I'm not taking this like gospel, and you probably shouldn't either. I'm only believing this if Taylor Rooks reports it!
Also, even if this is true, don't go doing your victory dance just yet. You might think DePaul doesn't have a chance, yet you've thought that the entire time, and now here they are in the final two. Imagine how you'll feel if you spend the next two weeks celebrating only to see Alexander choose the DePaul hat.
So reign it in, buddy. It's going to be a long and stupid 11 days until we find out for sure.
