Jalen Brunson's former high school teammate Justin Smith has cut his list to a final pair of schools, and the decision will come down to the Villanova Wildcats or the Indiana Hoosiers.

The 6'7" 215 lb. prospect is currently ranked #67 nationally in the 247 Composite after a big spring and summer with the Mac Irvin Fire (Ill.) on the Nike EYBL circuit.

Smith took an official visit to the Indiana campus two weeks ago and visted ‘Nova last weekend.

The Four-Star recruit is in a similar mold to fellow Wildcats target Jermaine Samuels. Both are above the rim players who excel as slashers and can defend multiple positions on defense. They can hit the outside shot but need to continue to develop in that area.

In trimming his list down to this foursome, the Mac Irvin Fire AAU product eliminated Xavier and Stanford from his list.

24/7 makes it appear that Indiana is the favorite...
