Michael Porter Jr. cuts list to 10; Kentucky Wildcats on it

Michael Porter Jr just cut his list to ten, and the Kentucky Wildcats made it.

Are we really getting excited about a recruit that is heading into his junior year of high school?

Of course Kentucky fans are. The No. 2-overall recruit in the high school class of 2017 and top small forward of the class Michael Porter Jr has just narrowed his list of schools in the bidding for his signing to ten; Kentucky is still in the running!

Porter's list is now down to Missouri, Stanford, Indiana, UCLA, Syracuse, Washington, Virginia, Kansas, Duke and, yours truly, Kentucky.

Porter is a 6'9" 205 lb small forward from Columbia, Missouri; currently attending Father Tolton Catholic High School. Porter's brother, also named Michael Porter, is a member of the class of 2018 and is already a verbal commit to the Washington Huskies. This has led many to believe that Porter Jr. could likely pick Washington.

We're still likely a year or so away from Porter actually making his college decision. The list is at ten, expect that number to consistently go down as the year goes on. Kentucky will likely be in the running for Porter Jr's talents all the way until the end, whether he commits to UK or not. John Calipari will make sure of that.
