Don’t get too excited until he tells you himself.

The TJ Power sweepstakes heated up relatively late, but it’s at full boil and the Shrewsbury, Mass. native plans to announce Wednesday at 5:00.

He’s down to Duke, UNC, Virginia, Boston College and Iowa. We generally like to go to non-Duke sites at times like this because they are less likely to be biased towards the Blue Devils.

So when Jerry Ratcliffe, who is a fine, veteran sportswriter but a Virginia guy when you get down to it, says Power is a heavy Duke lean over UVA, you have to pay attention.

Nothing is official until Power makes his announcement, but there are grounds for optimism. We’ll see later today.
