Big man Blake Buchanan is down to two: Virginia and Gonzaga.

The 6-foot-10 star from Lake City, Idaho, announced on his Instagram account this evening that he had narrowed his list of college choices to only the Cavaliers and the Zags.

Tony Bennett and his UVA staff have been following Buchanan for more than a year and offered him a scholarship in April. One of the hottest recruits in the country visited Virginia almost immediately after Bennett offered (visited the last weekend in April) and liked what he saw.

Buchanan is a stretch four, who can also play inside.

He eliminated Iowa, Penn State, Oregon State and Washington State from his list of potential schools.

It is speculated that Buchanan will be making a final decision soon.
