St. John's recruiting: Lance Stephenson Will NOT Announce Today

I had a post all ready about what Lance can and can't be... and then I hear this from Zagsblog:

Lance Stephenson Sr. called the McDonald’s PR people Monday night and told them his son wasn’t yet ready to announce his college decision. The 6-foot-5 Stephenson was expected to announce for Kansas today at media day.

"Following [Monday night's] POWERADE Jam Fest, the McDonald’s All-American Games staff learned that Lance Stephenson will not make his college decision at media day, Tuesday, March 31 at 11:45 a.m. or during the game on Wednesday, April 1 at the BankUnited Center in Miami," the statement read.

But "sources" think (from the Daily News):

Sources still strongly expect Stephenson to choose Kansas, one even adding that he's "99.9% sure" the Coney Island product will join the Jayhawks and pass on St. John's and Maryland. Sources believe Stephenson will choose a college if he is academically eligible and not follow prep star Brandon Jennings and play in Europe.

Stephenson's father vows his son has taken the SATs and will be eligible to play in college next season.

You know what I think about these sources? I think they don't know what they're talking about. I don't think Lance knows where he's going to college yet. And I don't know that Kansas is a lock, then; Stephenson has had many chances to announce on a public stage.

Unless Lance is checking on what's happening with the Kentucky/ Calipari situation, and what scholarships are open at Memphis if certain coaches end up there.
