Update: Darius Garland has changed his announcement to Monday at 2:45 p.m. CT, according to Evan Daniels. His father, Winston, confirmed those plans to Inside the Hall in a text message.

Class of 2018 Brentwood Academy (Tenn.) point guard Darius Garland has a date set to announce his college decision.

As first reported by Evan Daniels of Scout/247Sports, Garland will make an announcement on Wednesday, Nov. 15 at 5:30 p.m. CT at his high school.

The scheduled announcement time for Garland comes at the same time as the tip-off for Indiana’s road game against Seton Hall in the Gavitt Games.

Garland, the No. 10 player nationally according to the 247Composite, took official visits to Vanderbilt, Indiana, Kentucky and UCLA.

Originally from Gary, Indiana, Garland moved to Nashville as a seventh grader. His father, Winston, played at Gary Roosevelt, Missouri State and in the NBA for five different teams.

Garland was one of two five-star recruits to visit Bloomington for Hoosier Hysteria. The other was Romeo Langford, who is expected to trim his list to three schools on Saturday morning.

Garland is expected to sign his National Letter of Intent in the early signing period.

Indiana’s current four-man recruiting 2018 class is ranked No. 12 nationally by 247Sports.

    IU very flat. State can’t miss from outside. DD the one bright spark but sat last 10 mins with 2 fouls. Long way back in this one.

    Looks like we’ll be waiting for next year folks.
    Crean left IU with nothing but regular players….and then some.
    More power to ISU, my home town and 2nd favorite team. Hope they can continue this through the MO VAL. If not, that will tell is how bad this year will be for the Hoosiers.

    What the hell is everyone down about? Ya all act like you have never seen the Movie the Hoosiers… Remember how shitty Milan was at the start of their season? The team was used to playing run and gun basketball. The team had to adjust to a new system? Then bam! They kept getting better and better? As an IU fan, act like we have been here before. Let’s just sit back and watch the show build up. We Cub fans know what I am talking about. Suck isn’t so bad, as long as we know the team will improve.

    I loved the way IU was taken behind the wood shed from the start of the game. Yet Archie would not let them run down the court and throw up three’s. They still had to run their offence. Archie has got this! “Gotta have faith”. Or are we Illini fans?
