Trey Zeigler to announce plans on Wednesday
After a decision to take a weekend trip to Arizona State pushed back Trey Zeigler's college announcement plans, now the highly anticipated answer to where Zeigler will play college basketball will be announced tomorrow, on ESPNU. The announcement is expected at 4:45 p.m.
Zeigler told Mt. Pleasant Athletic Director Jim Conway that he was making his decision this week in order to have an official announcment next week, but with the opportunity to do it on national television, things have changed.
Zeigler has left five schools on his list of options: Michigan State, Michigan, UCLA, Arizona State, and Central Michigan. My gut (strictly my gut here, nothing from any sources) tells me this move is an indicator that CMU is the choice. Getting out on signing day and saying you are going to Central Michigan would have a major impact for CMU, more than any of the other schools. It would be a big momentum push for the CMU program to have a 4-star recruit saying he is going to CMU and that he wants to build something special there. Not to mention, since it is signing day, he could have Ernie there with him to add to the impact. Coming out and saying you are going to Michigan State or UCLA just wouldn't have the same impact to move up your announcement a week, cancel a visit, and be on television to make the announcement.
*AGAIN, THAT IS JUST MY GUT, NOT SOMETHING THAT I HAVE HEARD FROM ANYONE*
