Stephen Hurt, a 6-foot-10 center from Northwest Florida State, is down to two schools, Kansas State and Wichita State, he told SNY.tv.
He did not say when he will announce.
Hurt visited both schools, as well as Miami.
Former Northwest Florida coach Steve Forbes is currently an assistant at Wichita State, but K-State may have the edge.
“For a guy who is 6-10, 275, Stephen has some very impressive skills,” NWF coach Steve DeMeo told SNY.tv. “Very soft hands, has an array of post moves, passes well out of the post and is now starting to shoot the 3.
“In addition he is an excellent student and leader.”
