Bishop Gorman 7-foot center Stephen Zimmerman, one of the top five prospects for the Class of 2015, announced his final eight schools in a tweet early Wednesday morning.
The good news for UNLV basketball fans is that the Runnin’ Rebels made the cut along with Kansas, North Carolina, Indiana, Louisville, Kentucky, UCLA and Arizona.

ESPN.com ranks Zimmerman the No. 2 prospect for the Class of 2015 behind shooting guard Malik Newman of Jackson, Miss., while Rivals.com currently ranks him No. 4 and Scout.com has him at No. 5. In other words, he’s pretty darn good and will be a huge get for whatever school lands him.
