Joe Cremo has, for the first time, reportedly narrowed down his possible destination to five schools.
The scoring machine who committed to Albany during his junior year of high school before he could even take an official visit is down to Creighton, Oregon, Gonzaga, Texas and Penn State, CBS Sports’ Jon Rothstein reported.

Cremo, scored 17.8 points per game during his junior season at Albany and shot 45.8 percent from deep in the process, becoming the apple of every college’s eye — at least every college that’s in the market for a graduate transfer. Oregon, which is welcoming in a stellar recruiting class, could come out a winner in this Cremo sweepstakes of sorts and make that group even more impressive.
Cremo, a Scotia, N.Y., native, evidently doesn’t have much of a geographical preference, with the aforementioned schools scattered across five states (Nebraska, Oregon, Washington, Texas and Pennsylvania). Of those five schools, the last to make it to the Final Four is actually a tie between Oregon and Gonzaga, with each arriving in the 2017 national semifinals. The Bulldogs fell to North Carolina in the title game after the Tar Heels edged the Ducks in their semifinal showdown.
“It’s been a little overwhelming and a little crazy just because a lot of it is new to me,” Cremo told 247Sports’ Evan Daniels on April 2. “I’m excited and like I said, I know there is a lot of interest there and trying to look and make sure it’s the right fit.”
