Dez Wells decision coming Tuesday at 10 a.m.

Forward Dez Wells is expected to choose between Maryland, Oregon and Memphis on Tuesday morning at 10 a.m., and will announce his choice via his Twitter account (@DezWells_5).

The former Xavier forward had narrowed his choices down to those three schools, and recently arrived back in his Raleigh, N.C., home after visiting Maryland on Saturday and Oregon on Sunday.

Reports had Wells ruling out Kentucky last week. Louisville was in the running but did not have an open scholarship, and Ohio State canceled a scheduled visit.

Wells was expelled from his former school amid sexual assault allegations, even though an Ohio grand jury declined to pursue an indictment.

Late Sunday night, a source told The Post that, based on the relative excitement Wells showed while visiting College Park, Maryland might very well end up being his choice.
