After his Norcross team dispatched Laurinburg in double overtime Thursday in Charlotte, Top 15 junior Gani Lawal said he has established three favorites in his recruitment.
"I've changed it to Wake Forest, Kentucky and Georgia Tech – those are the schools I'm focusing in on right now," Lawal said. "My interest in those schools is a lot stronger than the two schools I took off my list (North Carolina and Duke).
"North Carolina isn't completely off the list, but I'm just focusing on those three schools. I can see myself in those programs a little bit better."
Lawal posted 11 points, 12 rebounds and four blocks, despite spending an extended period on the bench because of three first-half fouls.
"I had to play smart and pick my battles – even though I had three fouls, I still needed to be a dominant force in the middle," he said.
