Five-star junior Troy Williams celebrated his birthday on Friday. He also trimmed his list to five schools.
Williams announced on Twitter that his final five choices were North Carolina, Kentucky, Georgetown, Virginia Tech and Villanova.
“They’re schools that play my style of play, and they’re also not that far for my family,” Williams told CBSSports.com in a text message.
Williams has visited all of the schools on his list, outside of Villanova. He leaves today for a weekend trip to Kentucky.
Williams, a 6-foot-6 small forward from Pheobus (Va.), is one of the best scoring wings in the class. He has deep range on his 3-point shot, and he has a very solid mid-range game as well. On the defensive end, Williams’ length and athleticism are assets in the passing lanes.
He is ranked No. 8 in CBSSports.com’s Top 100 for 2013.
