Five-star small forward Kris Wilkes has revealed his top 11 schools. He is the No. 17 overall recruit and No. 4 small forward in the 2017 class.
One of the top prospects in the 2017 class has trimmed his list of final schools down to 11.
Kris Wilkes, a 5-star wing out of Indianapolis, tweeted out an image revealing which programs made the cut for his services.
“I would like to thank all the wonderful schools who’ve recruited me and made scholarship offers to me. After careful consideration and talking to my family these are the top 11 schools that I have came up with …”
In alphabetical order, Wilkes’ top 11 schools are Arizona, Butler, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, North Carolina, Ohio State, UConn, UCLA, Washington and Xavier.
Prior to this announcement, Wilkes also had offers from and was considering Kansas and Purdue.
A 6-foot-8, 190-pound wing, Wilkes’ potential is through the roof. He has ideal length at the small forward position and has a great feel for the game. He’s capable of knocking down three pointers, but really thrives with his mid-range jumper. Wilkes is comfortable running the floor and getting an easy bucket or drawing a foul in transition.
Thanks to his size, he can also provide a more athletic presence in the paint. Though he doesn’t camp out underneath the basket, he can play down on the blocks when called to.
If he can strengthen his shooting abilities from behind the arc to match his mid-range game, then Wilkes’ value will skyrocket even further.
Wilkes is the No. 17 overall recruit and No. 4 small forward in the 2017 class.
