Tonight's the night.
Harvard transfer Seth Towns will make his selection of Ohio State and Duke on the 11 p.m. SportsCenter this evening, he said on Twitter.

Initially, Towns whittled his list down to Ohio State, Kansas, Maryland, Michigan, Syracuse and Virginia. But the Blue Devils contacted him five or six days ago, putting them in the mix. Now it's a two-team race: Ohio State or Duke.
Towns would be a pretty big pick-up for the Buckeyes. He missed the past two seasons with a knee injury, which means he'll have some rust to knock off. But he should be healthy by mid-summer and is expected to have two years of eligibility.
The last time he was on the court, he earned the 2017-18 Ivy League Player of the Year award by averaging 16 points and 5.7 rebounds per game. He's also a knockdown shooter, having hit 44.1 percent of his 3-pointer that season.
Tonight, we'll find out where the Columbus Northland product will end up.
