It’s been a magical high school career for Madison Central point guard Dominique Hawkins. In the span of the past month, he’s been named Kentucky Mr. Basketball, the Gatorade Kentucky Boys’ Basketball Player of the Year, MVP of the Boy’s Sweet 16, and led his Indians to the school’s first state championship.

Now, as Hawkins’ high school career is ending, his dream of a college career could be beginning, as he’s expected to commit to the University of Kentucky during a full assembly in his high school gym tommorrorw morning at 8 a.m. EST.

It would be great. It’s been my dream school. When I was a little kid in diapers I was watching them and cheering for them. I’m still a fan of Kentucky.

Hawkins has confirmed offers from Western Kentucky, Morehead State, Purdue, South Carolina, Tennessee Tech and Murray State. He’s believed to have an offer from Kentucky, but both sides will keep that secret, as it would ruin any suspense surrounding his announcement Wednesday. Butler was showing significant interest as well.
