Wilkes is taking things slow

Five-star small forward Kris Wilkes isn't rushing into his college decision.

Small forward Kris Wilkes from Indianapolis (Ind.) North Central is one of the elite prospects in the class of 2017. At 6-foot-7 Wilkes keeps on getting better and his sophomore season is off to an excellent start.

“The season is going pretty good,” said Wilkes. “I think I am playing pretty well. I just need to do a better job of rebounding and also get some assists.”

North Central is off to a 3-0 start, and Wilkes likes what the young team is doing.

“I love this team, we play together well and we keep doing our thing,” explained Wilkes.

Already Wilkes has scholarship offers from Indiana, Purdue, Kansas, and Xavier with interest coming from Butler, Michigan, Michigan State, Illinois, Ohio State, and others.

According to Wilkes right now he is taking everything in stride, and isn’t even too focused on specific schools at the moment.

“It feels good to have so many offers, but I know I have to keep working hard, get more offers, and continue to get better,” said Wilkes.

At this point Wilkes hasn’t made any recent unofficial visits. He has made trips to Purdue, Indiana, Butler, and Xavier in the past, but at the moment he is focused on his school work as well as his basketball season more than recruiting.

Wilkes is considered the No. 4 small forward and the No. 15 prospect overall in the class of 2017.
