Heights boys basketball player Perry Ellis will announce his college decision on Wednesday.
Ellis will make his decision public at 2:45 p.m. in the Heights gymnasium.
Four schools made his final list — Kansas, Kansas State, Kentucky and Wichita State. Ellis recently hosted home visits with all four schools.
"He's handling it pretty smoothly," said Fonda Ellis, his mother. "I'm real impressed with how he's dealing with it. I think he's real excited for Wednesday."
Ellis, a 6-foot-8 forward at Heights, is No. 24 in the Rivals.com rankings for the class of 2012 and No. 37 in ESPNU's national list. He is the school's career rebound leader with 753 and second (behind Aubrey Sherrod) with 1,585 points. He averaged 22.1 points and 7.9 rebounds as a junior, leading the Falcons to a third straight Class 6A title.
Ellis plans to sign a national letter of intent during the signing period Nov. 9-16. He will make an official visit to the school he selects after the announcement.
