Marvin Bagley III, the 6-foot-10 forward considered the nation’s No. 1 2018 boys basketball prospect, still has Arizona, but has eliminated Arizona State from his college basketball recruiting list.
Bagley, a former Tempe Corona del Sol player who played his junior season at Chatsworth (Calif.) Sierra Canyon, released a new list of top six colleges through a Bleacher Report video on Friday.
Bagley had ASU and Oregon in his first list. Those schools have been replaced by Kansas and USC.
Others still on the list are Kentucky, Duke and UCLA, along with UA.
