Yep, DeMatha center BeeJay Anya has trimmed his list to 16 schools, all of which have offered scholarships.

The list includes three members of this weekend’s Final Four: Ohio State, Kansas and Louisville. Also, soon-to-be ACC members Syracuse and Pittsburgh. The Virginias: U-Va., Tech and West. And in no particular order: Rutgers, Memphis, UCLA, Arizona, Indiana, Notre Dame, Seton Hall and DePaul.

“I’m just trying to take it one step at a time right now,” Anya said.

Anya, who is 6 feet 9 and 270 pounds, will attend USA Basketball’s tryouts in Colorado Springs in June for the under-17 world championships in Lithuania later this summer. He also hopes to start taking college visits and cutting his options.

“Definitely distance is going to be a factor and timing and where I can go with AAU season starting up,” Anya said.
