Class of 2016 five-star shooting guard Rawle Alkins is one of the most in-demand prospects still on the market, but he is set to make a decision tonight. According to a tweet from ESPN recruiting director Paul Biancardi, Alkins will appear on ESPNU tonight at 9 p.m. ET and choose between three schools.
Those three? Arizona, St. John’s and UNLV.
Rawle Alkins will make his college decision tonight on CBB live at 9pm et on @ESPNU. Final 3 Arizona, Saint John's & UNLV.

Alkins, who is from Queens, New York and currently attends Word of God Christian Academy in Raleigh, North Carolina, has fine size for his position at 6-foot-4, 200 pounds and has also shown an ability to play small forward. Arizona’s fast-paced system could wind up being a perfect fit for him, and he could also be an immediate impact player at St. John’s.
UNLV is the real wild card, as coach Todd Simon only has the job on an interim basis as of now. Either way, one program is going to be incredibly lucky tonight.
Be sure to stay tuned to Campus Sports for updates on Alkins’ big announcement!
