College basketball fans will be able to see top-ranked basketball recruit Harrison Barnes announce his school decision Friday - if they have ESPN-U.

Officials at Ames High in Iowa, where Barnes is a student, have issued a news release saying Barnes will announce at 4 p.m. Friday.

A 6-foot-6 forward, Barnes is considering Duke, North Carolina, Iowa State, Kansas, Oklahoma and UCLA. He is rated the top prospect in the nation by scout.com.

Barnes also will sign his letter of intent Friday, according to his mother, Shirley Barnes. The early signing period for college basketball begins Wednesday.
