Kevon Looney Cuts to 6; Will Take Visits (UPDATED)
Kevon Looney, a 6-foot-8 power forward from Milwaukee Hamilton, has cut his list to six schools, according to Paul Biancardi of ESPN.com.
Looney is down to Duke, Florida, Wisconsin, Tennesse, Michigan State and UCLA.
He told Rivals.com that he will take officials to everybody except Wisconsin, which will get an unofficial. No dates have been set.
Speculation is running rampant that Looney will ultimately land at Duke — possibly in a class that also includes Tyus Jones and Jahlil Okafor.
“I’ve heard everybody saying that,” Looney told Rivals.com. “I’m still open, though, so we’ll have to see.”
