Maker was said to be considering reclassifying to the class of 2015, expediting his arrival in college. But according to CBSSports.com, Maker will likely stay put in the 2016 class. 

"It's still up in the air," Maker told CBSSports.com and one other reporter on Friday evening. "But it's leaning toward staying [in 2016] a little bit."

Maker was born in South Sudan and moved to Australia as a child. He attended Carlisle School in Virginia last year, but is unsure where he will be enrolled this fall.
