Will Donovan Peoples-Jones select Ohio State, Michigan, Michigan State or Florida State?

Donovan Peoples-Jones, the No. 1 wide receiver of the 2017 class, will make his college decision Thursday night.

It was initially reported that Peoples-Jones' announcement would come on ESPNU but the World Wide Leader's recruiting expert Tom VanHaaren said the 5-star will actually go live on the network's main channel.

Urban Meyer, Kerry Coombs, and Zach Smith braved a snowstorm Sunday night to visit Peoples-Jones before the start of the NCAA recruiting dead period.

The five-star receiver from Detroit Cass Technical has long been considered a Michigan lock, but Jeremy Birmingham of reported Sunday night two sources told him it's a 50/50 fight between Ohio State and Florida State.

Peoples-Jones officially visited Ohio State during its 38-17 win over Indiana on Oct. 8th, when Hurricane Matthew scuttled his original trip to Florida–LSU.

It'd be a shock if he ends up anywhere other than Michigan, but Peoples-Jones will decide between Michigan, Michigan State, Ohio State, Florida State, and Florida.
