Tokoto whittled his final list down to eight schools: Connecticut, Kansas, Kentucky, Marquette, Maryland, North Carolina, UCLA and Wisconsin. He held additional offers from Arizona, Michigan State, Minnesota, Stanford, Tennessee, Texas and others.

Previously, Tokoto had planned to decide at the start of the summer, according to his AAU coach Ritchie Davis. Before trimming his list, Tokoto had said Wisconsin, Duke, North Carolina, Kentucky and UCLA were his top five schools "unofficially." He planned to visit both UNC and Duke between Feb. 18-20. However, a rash of Duke commitments apparently closed the door on Tokoto becoming a Blue Devil. He then moved up his decision date after returning from Chapel Hill.
