Hawkins holding off on decision

March 30, 2013 

PG Dominique Hawkins of Richmond, KY was named his state's Mr. Basketball Friday night. He did not follow that up with a college commitment announcement as many had forecast.

Hawkins, who holds offers from USC and Purdue, is waiting on an offer from Kentucky. He met earlier in the week with Wildcats' coach John Calipari but as of Friday night an offer had not been extended. The UK coach apparently is still sorting things out with his roster for next season. Hawkins will now wait until after his spring break this week before making a decision.

He also has offers from Tennessee Tech, Morehead State and Western Kentucky, and Louisville has invited him to walk-on, but he is waiting on the word from Calipari before moving forward.
