2016 five-star power forward T.J. Leaf recently decommitted from Arizona, and he's already got a new list of eight schools in consideration.

According to the Twitter account of Leaf's AAU team, the Compton Magic, his list includes the Kentucky Wildcats and UCLA Bruins:

Leaf is currently ranked by as the No. 13 overall prospect in the 2016 recruiting class. He's also ranked No. 22 by 24/7 Sports, No. 9 by ESPN, and No. 12 by Rivals.

A 6-9, 215-pound forward who plays at Foothills Christian (CA), spent the past month playing for the Israeli national team during the U18 European Championships. He won MVP honors after averaging 16.1 points and 8.4 rebounds in nine games.

As for Leaf's crystal ball, UCLA looks like the favorite, but most of those predictions came in as soon as he decommitted from the Wildcats.

Almost a week later, the fact that Leaf hasn't flipped right to UCLA and has a list of eight schools now suggests he's still a long way from making another commitment. to this point, John Calipari hasn't recruited Leaf heavily. Let's see what happens if that changes in the coming weeks.
