CHICAGO -- One of the nation's top recruits, Cliff Alexander, announced on twitter he'll make his college decision in mid-to-late November.  Alexander originally said he'll decide on November 20th, then changed his mind saying he'll announce on his birthday, November 16th.  Either way he plans to make his announcement live on ESPN.

Alexander released the list of his Top 5 schools Monday.  Here they are in no order:  Illinois, DePaul, Michigan State, Kansas and Memphis.

Alexander is a 6-8, 225 lb power forward from Curie HS in Chicago.  Alexander is ranked as the No. 3 overall player in the Class of 2014 by ESPN.  He is scheduled to take an official visit to Illinois October 26th.

Illinois is currently projected to be one scholarship over the limit for the Class of 2014.  Alexander has said in recent weeks he would like to attend the same school as fellow five-star recruit PG JaQuan Lyle.
