Mohamed Bamba is one of the best players in the class of 2017, and the 6-foot-11 power forward is down to four schools in his recruitment.
Bamba, a five-star recruit ranked No. 3 overall by 247Sports, told reporters at the Hoophall Classic that he has cut his list down to four programs: Duke, Kentucky, Michigan, and Texas.
From Scout’s Evan Daniels:
Mo Bamba said he's down to Duke, Kentucky, Michigan & Texas. Plans to visit Kentucky next weekend.

Duke and Kentucky regularly do battle for recruits like Bamba, and are the clear recruiting powers in college basketball. It is hard not to see them as the favorites in this one. Such is life, in the recruitment of top five prospects.
Bamba is ranked as the No. 1 player in the state of New York.
With No. 1 recruit Deandre Ayton committed to Arizona, and No. 2 recruit Michael Porter Washington-bound, Bamba is the top uncommitted player in the country.
