Five-star basketball recruit Billy Preston is currently rated as the No. 5 power forward in the Class of 2017. With his status as a top recruit, there is plenty of intrigue regarding where he will play next.
Late Tuesday night, Preston gave some extra hope to five schools who remain under consideration.
Preston dropped his updated top five on social media.
The list includes Indiana, Kansas, Maryland, N.C. State and USC.
In a previous list, Preston had included the Arizona Wildcats and excluded Indiana and North Carolina State. Those teams, however, appear to be coming on strong for the top recruit.
Preston, the 6-foot-8 standout from Oak Hill Academy, is the No. 1 player in the state of Virginia.
According to the 247 Sports Crystal Ball projection, the USC Trojans have a 92 percent chance of landing the talented front court player.
