Sources: John Wall to pick UK

According to various Internet reports and SLAM Magazine, point guard John Wall will sign a national Letter of Intent with Kentucky.

Both Rivals.com and Scout.com are reporting the nation's top-rated recruit will join John Calipari's first recruiting class at UK. The 6-foot-4, 184-pound Wall told Rivals.com that his decision wasn't easy. "In the end, I just I wanted to play for Coach Cal."

"Being able to play against Eric (Bledsoe) is a big plus," Wall said.

Wall becomes the fourth 5-star recruit to join the Class of 2009, which is ranked by Rivals and Scout as the best in college basketball.

Wall played at Word of God Christian Academy in Raliegh. He chooses the Wildcats over Duke, Florida, Miami, Baylor, Memphis and N.C. State.
