AKRON, Ohio — Brandon Ashley is about to cut his list.
The 6-foot-7, 191-pound forward from Dublin, Calif., said he plans to trim his list either after this week’s LeBron James Skills Academy or next week’s Peach Jam.
“I’m going to cut down my list to about five or six,” Ashley, the No. 5 power forward in the Class of 2012 per Rivals, said Thursday at the LeBron Camp.
Rest assured that when he cuts his list, Arizona and Oregon will appear on it.
“I can’t really say if there [are] any schools that’s ahead for me; I’m still even-keeled with everybody right now,” Ashley said. “But they are two of the schools that’s recruiting me the hardest out of all the schools recruiting me.”
Ashley also told a Kentucky Website that Wildcats head coach John Calipari called last week and told him he remains a top priority.
