According to Pickerington Central coach Jerry Francis, Caris LeVert will announce his college decision by Wednesday. The 6-foot-5 guard wrapped up his Michigan visit on Friday and has also visited Dayton and Purdue within the last two weeks.
Now it appears that the Ohio decommitment is ready to wrap things up. As we reported on Sunday, that appears to be good news for the Wolverines.
“It’s got to get done this week,” Francis said in a phone interview today. “It has to get done by Wednesday. His mother’s on top of him, I’m on top of him, so I think he’s ready to get things done between these three schools.”
Xavier and Iowa were originally in the hunt for LeVert’s services but the Ohio native will decide between the three schools he’s visited.

Francis said he did not talk to LeVert following his Michigan visit, but he did text him. LeVert told him he had a great time, enjoyed the coaches and maybe just as importantly, he ate a lot – which is “what he needs.” Francis also reported that the Wolverines offered LeVert a scholarship on his visit.
Francis isn’t concerned that he hasn’t heard from LeVert in person or over the phone following the Michigan visit as today was Senior Appreciation Day at Pickerington Central, so LeVert and his fellow seniors were not in school. But Francis won’t let LeVert off the hook for much longer.
“I’m going to give him today, but if I don’t hear anything from him tonight, then I’m going over to his house,” Francis joked.
