Tyus Jones, the No. 1 point guard in the Class of 2014, has trimmed his list to seven schools, according to Rivals.com.
He has recently had home visits with Duke, Baylor, Ohio State, Michigan State and Kansas.
Kentucky and Minnesota are also on the list.
Here’s what he told Rivals about his visits through Sunday:
On Duke: “We had a good visit with them. Talked a little about why they feel I would fit in their program and stuff like that.”
On Baylor: “I also had a good visit with them. They were just pitching to myself and my family why they think I could fit in their program and the perks of going to Baylor and stuff like that.”
On Michigan State: “It was another good visit.”
On Ohio State: “We also had a great visit with them. We had a great time with all of the colleges. It was really all the same – myself and my family have a great relationship with all the coaches. So it was really relaxed and nothing too tense or anything like that.”
