Four-star 2017 SF Justin Smith (Lincolnshire, IL) has narrowed his list down to two finalists, according to ESPN's Jeff Borzello:

While it had long been assumed that Indiana and Villanova were the two favorites for Smith, the #76 overall player in the class of 2017 has decided to completely focus on his two finalists rather than dragging out the recruitment from other schools. The 6'7", 185 lb Smith has already taken official visits to both schools.

It should also be noted that sophomore Villanova PG Jalen Brunson was a high school teammate of Smith's at Stevenson HS (Ill.) that won the state title back in the spring of 2015. For what it's worth, 247Sports' Crystal Ball currently has 100% of its analysts predicting Smith to IU.
