Scottsdale, Arizona, receiver Christian Kirk, a 5-star recruit and the No. 36 overall player in the 2015 recruiting class, trimmed his list of potential schools down to six Wednesday afternoon.

He announced in a Tweet that he will be choosing among Arizona State, Auburn, Ohio State, Texas A&M, UCLA and USC:

Kirk is 5'10", 191 pounds and checks in as the No. 4 receiver in the country. No other player in the national top 25 is listed at under 6'0", which is a testament to Kirk's shiftiness in the slot.

According to Bleacher Report's Tyler Donohue, who was on location in Beaverton, Oregon, Kirk stood out as a quarterback favorite during Nike's The Opening in July. Some of those QBs might not be done playing with Kirk by the time next season rolls around.

"I've got a lot of quarterbacks talking to me about maybe playing together in college," Kirk told Donohue. "They're all trying. It's cool."

Chief among those quarterbacks are Texas A&M commit Kyler Murray and USC commit Ricky Town. The Aggies and Trojans are the two favorites on Kirk's 247Sports "Crystal Ball," and according to Donohue, they have both pitched Kirk on coming to their schools.

"Kirk is on my list," said Town. "He's a guy we're pursuing at USC and someone who would be great to throw the ball to at the next level."

"He's my boy and he knows the deal," chimed in Murray. "I don't think I even need to say anything to Christian about that."

Here Murray is connecting with Kirk in the seven-on-seven tournament:

The third favorite on Kirk's "Crystal Ball" is Ohio State, and even though the Buckeyes didn't have a QB around to pitch Kirk in Beaverton, Adam Gorney of Rivals.com thinks they are in the mix to get him:

No matter where he commits, and no matter who is throwing him the ball, Kirk looks like a potential game-changer at the next level. Comparisons with Percy Harvin should never be taken lightly.

It's a good day for all six of these schools.
