University of Detroit Jesuit's Cassius Winston, one of the top high school point guards in the nation, reportedly has narrowed his college choices to Michigan, Michigan State, Stanford, Harvard and Pittsburgh.

Winston (6-0, 165) is rated a four-star prospect and the No. 6 point guard in the country for the 2016 class by Scout.com.

"Michigan, Michigan State, Pittsburgh, Stanford and Harvard are coming after me," Winston told Scout.com last week. "Those ones are recruiting me the hardest."

Winston gave an assessment of UM and MSU to Scout:

Michigan: "I like that it's a guard-oriented game. They give the guards the ball, they push tempo and get a lot of shots, play defense and it's a very good program. I like the coaches and everything."

Michigan State: "Defensive team, they play hard and you have to give your best effort every night. They just win games."

Winston broke his wrist in May and that has kept him out of action most of this summer.

Winston averaged 18 points, nine assists and seven rebounds last season as U-D Jesuit reached the Class A semifinals. He was named to The Detroit News Dream Team.
