Timeline In Place For Tokoto

Shortly after J.P. Tokoto's trip to North Carolina, Scout.com caught up with his father to get a recap on the trip and find out the latest on his recruitment.

J.P. Tokoto, a 2012 wing prospect out of Menomonee Falls (Wisc.) High, is closing in on a college decision.

According to Trevor Trimble – Tokoto's father – the highly regarded wing prospect is under 30 days away from making a college commitment.

The current plan is for Tokoto to take an unofficial visit to Maryland on Wednesday and then visit Bo Ryan and the Wisconsin Badgers. Soon after, Tokoto will examine his recruitment further.

"Our goal, and I think it's in the best interest of J.P., is to have this thing wrapped up in the next 30 days," Trimble told Scout.com.

Tokoto, who recently narrowed his list of schools to Connecticut, Kansas, Kentucky, Marquette, Maryland, North Carolina, UCLA, and Wisconsin, took an unofficial visit to UNC this past weekend.

"The visit at UNC we were able to go to the game on Saturday and had a good time," Trimble said. "It was a slow paced game and both of the teams played good defense and seemed to both lack offense."

"Sunday we really just hung out with family," Trimble added. "But today we got to take the tour and check out the academic support they have and take in a practice."

This visit to North Carolina was Tokoto's fifth such trip, but it was his first time visiting the campus while school was in session.

"Our main reason [for visiting] was because we had never been while school was in session," Trimble said. "J.P. was able to go to various schools while they were in session, but he never got the opportunity at Carolina."

"What we wanted to build from an influential standpoint, was you want to see it in full mode. We've been to Wisconsin in full mode and Marquette. We've been to Kentucky in full mode. This was just one school that we haven't seen in full mode."

The four-star prospect is currently averaging just over 20 points a game during his junior season.
