Kris Wilkes Sets UNC Official Visit

Five-star forward will be in Chapel Hill next month.

Five-star forward Kris Wilkes knows two of his official visit destinations. The Indianapolis (Ind.) North Central standout will visit a couple of the powers of college basketball this fall, according to his father, Greg Wilkes.

“We are visiting North Carolina August 26 through August 28,” said the elder Wilkes. “After that we will also officially visit UCLA September 22 through September 24.”

North Carolina just stepped forward with an offer this week while UCLA has been involved with Wilkes for more than a year.

On Sunday Wilkes will release the list of schools that have offered him a scholarship, and from there he will continue to make cuts down before forming a final group of schools that he will choose between.

Clearly North Carolina and UCLA will be on that final list. Other schools that have been showing Wilkes considerable attention include Indiana, Purdue, Notre Dame, Xavier, Ohio State, Michigan, Arizona, Butler, and Illinois.
