Ivan Rabb cuts list of potential schools to five

Friday October 24th, 2014

Ivan Rabb, the No. 5 high school basketball prospect in the ESPN 100, announced Friday that he has reduced his list of potential schools to five, ESPN's Paul Biancardi reported.

Rabb, who is also the No. 3 power forward in this year's senior class, said that he had set his sights on Arizona, California, Kansas, Kentucky and UCLA. Based on the new list, Duke, North Carolina, Georgetown and Louisville are out of consideration.

Rabb has been a standout for the Oakland Soldiers as well as his high school, Bishop O'Dowd. The Oakland native also kept hometown Cal in the running, turning down offers from Duke and Louisville. He also reportedly has an offer from Kentucky.

The 6-foot-10 power forward helped the United States take gold in the FIBA U17 World Championships this summer in Dubai.

According to the Louisville Courier-Journal, Rabb will visit the University of Kentucky in Lexington this weekend. The team's annual Blue-White Scrimmage is set for Monday.

That will be the first of his official visits.
