Big man standout Rakeem Christmas has trimmed his list to include only Baylor, Florida, Georgetown, Indiana, Ohio State, Oklahoma, Texas and Villanova.
With regards to his recruitment, Rakeem stated:
"I appreciate the interest that many coaches have in me but these are the schools that my family and I think would be a good fit for me. My family and I are thankful to everyone that has offered me a scholarship and participated in my recruiting. I'm looking forward to my season at ANC and playing for Coach Givens. I've played with some of the players during the summer and I had a good time. After summer is over I want to make sure that I do well and improve in class and on the court."
