James Wiseman announced he has narrowed his list of potential schools to eight.
For months the race in Wiseman’s recruitment has essentially been between two suitors, Kentucky and Memphis. As expected, the Wildcats and the Tigers are finalists for the nation’s top-ranked player. The Memphis native is also considering Arizona, Vanderbilt, Kansas, Texas, Florida State and North Carolina.
Kentucky is the first school mentioned in Wiseman’s announcement, set to the stylings of Drake.

In an interview with Prep Circuit, Wiseman had this to say about John Calipari’s Kentucky Wildcats:
“Coach Calipari helps a lot of NBA players that have went through their program. Anthony Davis is my favorite NBA player and he went there. Then you have DeMarcus Cousins and a lot more great players who play in the league today. I think Coach Calipari has great connections such as getting his players to the NBA. I have a very strong relationship with Coach Calipari.”
I think the Big Blue Nation could get used to seeing Wiseman in that uniform.
