The No. 1 graduate transfer in the country has cut down his list of potential schools to eight, according to multiple reports.

Carlik Jones, the Big South Player of the Year, has entered his name into the NCAA's transfer portal. The Radford guard is considering a major transfer.

Dozens of the top programs across the country have expressed interest in Jones, but the elite guard has shortened his list to eight.

Jones is considering: Louisville, West Virginia, Gonzaga, Maryland, Texas Tech, Michigan State, Marquette and Radford.

Jones reportedly fielded calls from more than 40 different schools after he entered his name into the NCAA transfer portal. He'll eventually decide on one of the eight schools listed above.

The Radford guard is coming off a great 2019-20 season.

Jones, a Cincinnati native, averaged 20 points, 5.5 assists and 5.1 rebounds a game for Radford in 2019-20. He should be an instant-impact player for the school he transfers to.
