Originally slated to announce his college pick on Oct. 31, five-star, Class of 2021 point guard JD Davison has moved things up and instead will make his choice known this weekend, according to 247 Sports analyst Travis Branham.

Davison is now expected to reveal his decision on Saturday, and the No. 13-ranked player in the 2021 class per is choosing between Kansas, Alabama, Auburn, LSU, Michigan and Memphis.

According to the Tipton Edits Twitter account, Saturday is also Davison’s birthday.

Davison, who hails from Calhoun High in Letohatchee, Ala., trimmed his list to his final six in late August. recruiting analyst Dan McDonald recently called the 6-foot-3, 180-pound lead guard “a highlight reel play waiting to happen,” and noted that Davison is “a threat to do something, from an athletic standpoint, that few others can, so you can’t take your eyes off of him.”

McDonald and’s Russ Wood both recorded FutureCast picks for Alabama on Thursday, and the in-state Crimson Tide have long been considered one of the leaders for Davison’s services. Auburn, another Alabama school, also has been a popular pick among prognosticators.

With that said, the 247 Crystal Ball predictions are currently empty for Davison.

No exact time has been given for Davison’s announcement on Saturday.
