    Four-star power forward Esa Ahmad has a final five, his father told SNY.tv Thursday.

    The 6-foot-7 power forward from Cleveland (OH) Shaker Height is down to Ohio State, West Virginia, Wisconsin, Maryland and Oregon.

    “Esa wanted to play in either the Big Ten, Big 12 or Pac-12,” Ibby Ahmad told SNY.tv.

    He kicks off his visits with a trip to Maryland this weekend.

    Other visits are “in the works,” his dad said.

    “I want to make sure I pick the right school for me, the right fit and coming in to have an impact as a freshman,” Ahmad recently told SNY.tv.

    Ahmad closed his excellent summer with a top performance at the Nike Global Challenge. Ahmad showed great chemistry with top guards and used his versatility. He went 8-for-9 for Team USA Midwest in the third place game.
