Class of 2016 Roman Catholic (Pa.) forward Lamar Stevens is narrowing the focus in his recruitment.

The 6-foot-6 Stevens, who visited Indiana last season, tweeted a list of schools on Friday afternoon and told Inside the Hall via text message that Indiana, Marquette, Maryland, Penn State, Pittsburgh, SMU, Temple, Villanova are the schools he’ll continue to evaluate in his recruitment.

Earlier this month at the Peach Jam in North Augusta, South Carolina, Stevens spoke highly of Indiana.

“It’s such a great, historic program,” he told Inside the Hall. “They’ve had some great success in the past and Coach Crean is a great guy with great assistants. They get great players there. I like the fans and the city. There’s just so much to like about it.”

The Hoosier staff has continued to track Stevens closely this month. He averaged 9.8 points on 38.5 percent shooting over five games.
