Five-star center Onyeka Okongwu has a new top five schools list, according to his AAU team.

Onyeka Okongwu, a 2019 recruit from Chino Hills, California, plays AAU ball for the Compton Magic.

He is ranked No. 22 overall by 247Sports for his class, and No. 5 among centers. He's the third-ranked recruit in California.

According to the Compton Magic, Arizona State, Kansas, UCLA, USC, and Washington are the five top teams for Okongwu.

Three predictions have been logged in 247Sports' crystal ball. All have Okongwu heading to UCLA, although that is obviously not a huge sampling yet.

Okongwu checked out the Bruins on an unofficial visit in September. So far, it appears to be the only trip he has made during his recruitment, but that is sure to change moving forward.

Cal, DePaul, Ohio State, Oregon, and Stanford are among the other schools that have offered the 6-foot-9 center so far.
