Class of 2017 North Central forward Kris Wilkes now has dates set for all five of his official visits.

The five-star prospect announced a finalized schedule for official visits via his Twitter account on Monday afternoon. Here’s the schedule:

– Illinois (Sept. 9-11)
– UCLA (Sept. 22-24)
– Indiana (Sept. 30-Oct. 2)
– Xavier (Oct. 28-30)
– UConn (Nov. 4-6)

Wilkes is ranked the No. 17 prospect nationally according to the 247Composite. As a junior at North Central, he averaged 22.6 points and 5.6 rebounds per game.

Four-star point guard lists Indiana among finalists

Class of 2017 St. Benedict’s Preparatory School guard David Beatty trimmed his list from eight to five on Monday and Indiana made the cut.

Beatty, a 6-foot-3, 195 pound guard, is considering Georgetown, Indiana, La Salle, Maryland and UConn.

The three schools trimmed from Beatty’s list were UCLA, Virginia and Temple. He told last month that he plans to take an official visit to Bloomington this fall.

Beatty is ranked the No. 125 player nationally in the 247Composite and is considered a four-star prospect. He had a strong spring and summer with Philly Pride on the Under Armour Association circuit. In 12 UA Association circuit games, Beatty averaged 13.5 points, 3.3 rebounds, 3.3 assists and 1.2 steals per game.

Tucker trims to eight

Class of 2017 wing Jordan Tucker, who recently announced that he will transfer from Archbishop Stepinac (N.Y.) to Wheeler (Ga.) for his senior season, has a list of finalists.

The 6-foot-7 Tucker, who has already taken an unofficial visit to Indiana, is down to Arizona, Duke, Indiana, Louisville, Maryland, Syracuse, USC and Villanova. Duke has not offered a scholarship.

Tucker visited Bloomington back in the spring following the Nike Elite Youth Basketball League stop in Westfield.
