Bronson Koenig just began his junior year of high school, but he’s ready to make a college decision.

“In the next two or three weeks,” Koenig said.

The 6-foot-2 point guard from Aquinas (Wisc.) received plenty of attention early in his high school career, garnering offers from several big-name schools before his sophomore season.

Now, though, he has trimmed his list to two: North Carolina and Wisconsin.

“They’ve been recruiting me basically from the start and I feel comfortable with both of them,” Koenig said. “I can see myself fitting in with either one.”

Virginia and Duke were left off his final two, while Kansas and Marquette didn’t make the cut either.

Since it’s so early in the process, it’s interesting that Koenig is ready to get it over with already.

“I’m just feeling quite a bit of pressure lately and I feel like if I commit, I can just not worry about it anymore and focus on my game more,” he said.

Before he decides, he plans on taking another unofficial visit to Wisconsin. Koenig also wants to check out North Carolina again, but his mother just had foot surgery so he is not sure if he will able to get to Chapel Hill.

Right now the two schools are equal.

“Comfort level with the school, trust with the coaches,” Koenig said when asked what would be the factors in his decision. “I’ll just be able to feel it.”

Whichever school he chooses will be getting one of the best shooters in the class. Koenig has tremendous range on his 3-point jumper, and has an ability to get his shot off against any defender. He is not explosive or extremely quick, but he has good ball-handling ability and the confidence to run a team.

Koenig ranks No. 45 in’s Top 100.

I would expect nothing less from a UNC fan, there is a reason your fanbase is one of the most arrogant in all of CBB. He isn't going to drag it out, as he plans to announce it very soon.

Go figure with your username name. If it was such a certainty why doesn't he announce now? It would make no point to drag it out, it's not like he's taking anymore visits.

He can go to Wisconsin and go as deep as the Elite 8.  Or go to UNC be surrounded my Mickey D's players and NBA talent, be in competetive practices, play for a Hall of Fame coach, and compete for a National Championship.
