Class of 2017 standout Michael Porter Jr. cuts list to 17

One of the top players in the 2017 recruiting class is Tolton Catholic forward Michael Porter Jr. Rivals ranks Porter as the No. 2 player in the nation, so it is no surprise that he will be generating plenty of interest from the top schools around the nation.

In anticipation of the clock striking midnight and schools allowing to contact 2017 class members on Monday morning, Porter took to social media to list the 17 schools he will consider.

Sure, 17 schools is a lot, but Porter wanted to limit the amount of schools that will contact him out of the gate.

Porter explained why he announced his list, despite having so many teams still in the mix.
