Five-star 2018 forward Cameron Reddish down to eight

According to a report, five-star small forward Cameron Reddish is down to eight schools.

Not surprisingly, Kentucky is in the mix.

Basketball recruiting analyst/scout Pat Lawless reported on Twitter that Reddish has narrowed his list to Duke, Kentucky, Villanova, Miami, Arizona, Maryland, UConn and UCLA.

Reddish is the No. 5 player in the Rivals150 for the Class of 2018 on Rivals.com.

Just yesterday Rivals.com's Krysten Peek voiced her opinion that Reddish will make a relatively early decision in favor of the Blue Devils.

Days before that Rivals.com's Eric Bossi listed Reddish among his top performers from April evaluation period.

Bossi wrote: "Reddish had a terrific junior season, but he has taken things to another level and emerged as the best wing prospect in the country during April. He's pushing 6-foot-8 now, is a money jump shooter and can create for others. Whenever I watch, I think Jimmy Butler in training."

Reddish attended Big Blue Madness in Lexington last year and all indications were he had a very good time and enjoyed the atmosphere. Most recently, John Calipari's staff watched Reddish multiple times in AAU action in late April.
