A couple weeks after cutting his list of schools down to seven, one of the top players in the Class of 2016 is ready to begin taking official visits.

As reported by Evan Daniels of Scout.com, five-star guard De’Aaron Fox has scheduled four official visits for this fall with LSU having the honor of hosting him first. Fox will visit LSU the weekend of September 18, with that being followed by trips to Louisville (September 26), Kansas (October 10) and Kentucky (October 17).

The visits to Kansas and Kentucky will be on important recruiting weekends for both programs, with Kansas hosting its annual “Late Night in the Phog” festivities and Kentucky having “Big Blue Madness.”

That schedule leaves Fox with one available official visit remaining, and it remains to be seen which of the other three schools on his list will win out for that trip (or if he uses it at all). Per Scout.com, Fox also has home visits set up with LSU, Kansas, Arizona, NC State and Kentucky before he takes his first official visit.

In mid-August Fox announced that he’d narrowed his list to Arizona, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisville, LSU, NC State and North Carolina.
