2017 point guard Chris Lykes cuts list to 5 schools, including Villanova

The explosive guard is down to five - but is open to revising that list.

Gonzaga (D.C.) point guard Chris Lykes has narrowed his list to five schools, per City of Basketball Love's Josh Verlin.

Lykes, who will play with Team Takeover in the Nike EYBL this spring and summer, has seen his recruitment take off after a strong junior season which saw him win Player of the Year in the highly competitive WCAC, as well as Gatorade Player of the Year in Washington D.C.

Villanova offered Lykes in late January, and will hope it's ties to Gonzaga - the same school that Kris Jenkins attended - can give them a leg up in what is looking like a highly competitive recruitment.

Note that this list isn't final, and it wouldn't be surprising to see some more schools try to jump in the mix for Lykes as he gains more notoriety in the coming months on the AAU circuit.
