Top 100 Texan announces tonight

According to his mother, Ava Slaughter, Missouri City (Texas) Elkins three-star inside linebacker Blake Slaughter will announce his decision on local television around 6:30 p.m. Wednesday.
Ranked as the nation's No. 40 inside linebacker and the No. 100 player in the Lone Star State, Slaughter, who is 6-foot and 219 pounds, recently narrowed his list to Iowa State, Kansas State, Oklahoma State and Rice.
Slaughter's decision will be broadcast on KHOU's digital cable channel in Houston (Comcast 310) and also carried live on the station's website.
Rivals.com will have full coverage of Slaughter's decision after he makes the announcement.
Slaughter had positive stuff to say about each team on his list.
"What can I say about Kansas State," Slaughter said.
"The atmosphere up there is insane. Rice has great academics. It's so hard to pass that up. I can really see myself playing there. That's what makes this decision so hard. At Oklahoma State it's football, football, football. They are always in the mix against the toughest teams. They've been to bowl games and have been around the Top 25 for years. Iowa State had the best facilities I've seen yet and I got to meet coach Gene Chizik."
