Las Vegas power forward Stephen Zimmerman released a list of eight finalists Wednesday that included Kentucky and Louisville.
Zimmerman is a top-five prospect in the class of 2015, ranked as high as No. 2 overall by Rivals.com. The 7-footer has narrowed his list to Arizona, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisville, North Carolina, UCLA and UNLV.
He has not yet made a recruiting visit to UK, but both Zimmerman and his mother have told the Herald-Leader in the past that they will see Lexington before making a college decision.
Zimmerman plays for Bishop Gorman (Nev.) — the alma mater of former UK recruit Shabazz Muhammad — and is a member of the Oakland Soldiers on the Nike EYBL summer circuit. Several of the Soldiers’ best players have ended up at Arizona.
