Having already cut his list to 10 schools, Kevin Knox plans to trim his list to five or six “sometime this week,” he told SNY.tv on Wednesday.

Knox’s current list includes Duke, North Carolina, Miami, Alabama, Kansas, Kentucky, Villanova, Florida State and Arizona.
Kimani Lawrence, the 6-foot-7 small forward from Expressions Elite and New Hampton School, cut his list to five schools and set up officials.
Lawrence will visit Arizona State (Sept. 23), USC (Oct. 1), Pittsburgh (Oct. 8), Florida (Oct. 15) and Texas (Oct. 20).
“Kimani is a big wing with a high IQ who can score the ball in many ways,” said Todd Quarles, director of Expressions Elite. “He can shoot the 3 ball, is a tremendous slasher that plays above the rim and has a very good mid-range game. His ceiling is very high and that is why so many colleges were after him He’s a tremendous person who is a great student and very coachable and he wants to win.”
