Five-star Class of 2019 big man James Wiseman released his top five list of schools on Wednesday.

Considered by some to be the top long-term prospect in the class, the 7-foot-0 native of Tennessee said on Twitter that he is down to Florida State, Kansas, Kentucky, Memphis and Vanderbilt.

Kentucky and Memphis have long been considered the top two schools in the Wiseman race as head coaches John Calipari and Penny Hardaway have established great relationships with the big man. While Wiseman has always mentioned Kansas and Vanderbilt as being in the picture, many recruiting insiders and college coaches think that Kentucky and Memphis are the two teams to beat. Florida State is the relative newcomer on Wiseman’s list, as they’ve made enough of a late push to secure the final spot.

Wiseman is still in the process of taking official visits, as he hasn’t set any sort of timetable on announcing his final decision.
