Thompson to announce Saturday

Darius Thompson can both score and distribute.

Darius Thompson decommitted from Vanderbilt, but it looks like another SEC school will get a commitment from him Saturday night.

Thompson, a 6-4, 175-pound combo guard from Murfreesboro (Tenn.) Blackman High School, is slated to play in the Midstate All-Star Showcase Saturday night. His travel team coach Carlton Battle of Team Nashville told 247Sports that Thompson will announce his college decision at the all-star game.

With a final four of Alabama, Auburn, Tennessee and Virginia, Thompson is expected to choose Tennessee.

Since his decommitment, Thompson has only visited Tennessee.

Thompson and his Blackman came into the state tournament with an undefeated record but suffered a devastating come-from-behind loss in the quarterfinals. Thompson averaged 16 points and six rebounds per game.

He is the No. 188-ranked prospect by 247Sports and the No. 242 ranked prospect in the 247Composite.
