RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - John Wall, one of the nation's most sought-after recruits, has decided to play for Kentucky.

The point guard from Word of God Christian Academy High School in Raleigh had been pursued by numerous schools including Duke, Kansas and Miami. But he has committed to play for new Kentucky coach John Calipari, according to several media reports.

In an interview with Scout.com on Tuesday morning, Wall said his relationship with Calipari put the Wildcats over the top. He's part of a UK class that the recruiting site ranks as the nation's best.

Word of God is planning a news conference for Wall to formally announce his decision Wednesday.

Wall was named The Associated Press men's player of the year for
North Carolina in March.
