As he prepares to play along side Cole Aldrich for the Fox Valley Skillz in the Reebok Big Time in Las Vegas, Keaton Nankivil has trimmed his list to three schools and hopes to have a decision by the end of the summer.
Nankivil, a 6-foot-8, 245-pound post player from Memorial High School in Madison, Wisc., is down to Boston College, Marquette and Wisconsin.
"Everybody is even right now," said Fox Valley Skillz coach Ritchie Davis. "Keaton said he just wants to enjoy the Big Time and play hard. Then he'll take a week or two and breakdown these three schools and get with the coaches on any questions he has. He is hoping that by the end of the summer, he will be ready to make a decision."

Nankivil, the No. 88 ranked prospect in the Rivals150, has already unofficially visited all three schools.
At the NBA Players Camp in June, he played more aggressively around the basket and shot with deeper range than he did earlier in the spring.
"Keaton is more athletic than people think," said Davis. "He spent a lot of time on his face up game in the spring, and it is starting to pay off. Now he is working on putting the ball on the floor for a couple dribbles and attacking the basket from 17 feet."
Keaton Nankivil scouting report:
Nankivil has now moved his shooting range to beyond the three-point line. He has above average athleticism around the basket and can score both off post moves and offensive rebounding. Working on his ball handling, the ultimate key for Nankivil is to play with a high level of intensity.
