John Bol, one of the top center prospects in the class of 2024, is down to four schools, his agent Chris Wash told On3. Moving forward, the 7-foot-2 center will consider Georgia Tech, Ohio State, USC, and UTSA.

The next steps in Bol’s recruitment are to take visits during the months of August and September, before making a decision by early-October, according to Wash. He also plans to sign during the early period in November. Bol recently announced he’d be transferring from Sunrise Christian (Kan.) to Overtime Elite (Ga.) for his senior season.

Bol originally committed to Florida in June, before de-committing a few weeks later. At the time, he chose the Gators over Michigan, Missouri, Nebraska, and more.

The South Sudan native ranks as the No. 34 overall prospect and No. 5 center in the 2024 cycle, according to the On3 Industry Ranking, a weighted average that utilizes all four major recruiting media companies. He is also the No. 4 player in Georgia.

Bol Scouting Report

“John Bol is a unique athletic specimen. At over 7 feet tall, his agility and his ability to move are not like other players his size. He has defensive upside as a weak side rim protector and someone who can move his feet when switching along the perimeter. Bol will need to add strength; he is currently very thin. He gets moved off his spots on both ends of the floor easily. The added strength could help him become a better post-defender and finish better in the paint. Offensively, Bol is at his best with putbacks and in lob situations. His offensive game is pretty limited right now; he has touch but needs to develop his range and some low post moves. However, his height allows him to be a vertical lob threat, and he has good hands and dexterity in the air. Bol has an intriguing upside. His flashes are starting to produce now with more strength and continued minutes and reps there is a lot of ceiling to fill.” – On3’s Jamie Shaw
