Five-star 2016 recruit Malik Monk cut his list of schools to just six on Tuesday night.

Monk’s brother, Marcus, told Evan Daniels of Scout.com that the 6-foot-4 shooting guard is down to Arkansas, Florida State, Kansas, Kentucky, North Carolina and Oregon. Monk has also set four of his five official visits. He travles to Eugene, Oregon on Sept. 18. He will later be at Kansas for Late Night in the Phog on Oct. 9, followed by a trip to Lexington for Big Blue Madness the next weekend. Monk ends the month with a trip in-state to Arkansas.

Monk cut the likes of Baylor, Florida, Indiana, Iowa State and Memphis from contention. He is listed as the sixth-best player in the Class of 2016 by Rivals.

This summer, Monk averaged 25.2 points, 3.9 rebounds and 3.1 assists per game for the Arkansas Wings in the Nike EYBL. In July, he led USA South to the Nike Global Challenge title, earning MVP honors.
