Nation's number one down to six
The nation’s top player has moved his recruitment to the next level.
Harrison Barnes trimmed his school list to six programs. Now the Ames (Iowa) High School star hopes to find the one that fits him the best.
Barnes said he is considering North Carolina, Duke, Kansas, Oklahoma, UCLA and Iowa State.
“I have contacted schools not on this list to thank them for recruiting me,” Barnes said in email to the National Hoops Report.
Barnes also said he will visit every school expect Iowa State officially. The Cyclones will host the local star unofficially. The only official visit that he is locked up is a trip to Chapel Hill to see the Tar Heels on Sept. 4. Duke, he says, will get a visit on either Oct. 16 or Oct. 23.
“The other visits are to be determined,” he said.
