The saga is almost over.

Five-star point guard Darius Garland will announce his college choice on Wednesday at 5:30 PM CT 2:45 PM on Monday (updated) at Brentwood Academy, according to Evan Daniels of 247 Sports.

Garland announced a top six of Duke, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, UCLA, and Vanderbilt back in July, but he didn’t make an official visit to Duke and seems to have eliminated the Blue Devils from contention. Most insiders think that his final choice will come down to Indiana and Vanderbilt.

The original timing of the announcement was interesting. Indiana plays Seton Hall in a game that tips off at 5:30 on Wednesday. The initial word was that Garland would make his announcement either on Friday or Monday, both days that Vanderbilt has a game. Vanderbilt does not play on Wednesday.

So, now we have a few more days to wait. Wednesday is the last day of the early signing period, so it is likely that Garland will also be signing a letter of intent.
