Every Thursday, we post which prospects will be on campus that weekend for college visits. Ever wonder what a coach does when his top target is on someone else's campus? That's got to be excruciating. It's like dating a beautiful girl and she likes you -- but she's going to have dinner with George Clooney. I don't know how these guys keep it together.
A run on commitments earlier in the week shrunk our official visit list, but a tour of the nation yields a dozen ESPN 100 prospects on campuses this Saturday.
Just which school has the best weekend lined up is debatable. However, Michigan is at Notre Dame in football, and that means it’s a tough ticket in South Bend. Mike Brey invited his two committed prospects to pal around with his most pivotal prospect: PG Demetrius Jackson (Mishawaka, Ind./Marian Catholic). We have reason to believe Jackson wants to end his process soon, and the Irish should be the final school to host him. No need for a plane ticket, either -- Jackson lives only a few miles from campus.
Editor's note: There’s no guarantee all these guys make it to campus. Also, this is merely a snapshot of the country, not the full representation of each program.
Visitor: SF Jordan Scott
Scott’s brother was in the ESPN 100 last year and his father works in admissions at Air Force. So we’re saying Jordan has a chance to get admitted!
Visitor: SF Tre’Shaun Lexing
Herb Sendek has a new staff and they’ve got a summer favorite in Lexing on campus.
Visitor: PG John Dawson
Could be the No. 2 player in New Mexico, and we liked him a lot during the AAU season.
Visitor: PG Dayshon Smith
Programs are finding good point guards difficult to come by, and Archie Miller wouldn’t mind locking Smith down.
In Vegas, Woodward proved to be one of the summer finds at the point, and Drake is finding Gonzaga and Butler sniffing around his recruitment.
Visitor: ESPN 60 C Dakari Johnson
This was supposed to be Schulyer Rimmer’s visit weekend before he decommitted this week. Johnson is a tentative visit but worth noting given his profile.
Visitor: ESPN 100 PF Reggie Cameron
Look, if you’re a program that values forwards who can shoot, this kid is the definition of no-brainer.
Mark Fox has spent considerable time watching Smith and Giddens. Fitting they're finally in the same place so Fox doesn't have to go gym to gym to see them like he did in July.
Visitor: PF Michael Thomas
Meet the smartest recruit in America, Mike Thomas. A three-day weekend in Hawaii? You kidding me?
Visitor: ESPN 100 SG Xavier Rathan-Mayes
The Florida State Seminoles are the favorites here. Can Illinois capitalize on the momentum of the Kendrick Nunn commitment?
The Hawkeyes have been aggressive with underclassmen, and Smart and Nixon haven’t been afraid to drive to Big Ten campuses this fall. Jok was at Drake last weekend.
Visitor: SF Darin Johnson
People fell hard for him in the summer and he has that feel of a blue-collar Buzz Williams special.
The Alexander trip is tentative, but Edwards is one of the top young point guards in the region. Kentucky and Michigan State should play rock, paper, scissors in a best-of-three for Alexander.
Nothing to see here. Just a couple of Chicago guys making their way to Minnesota for the weekend. The Gophers have been on an underclassman tear; this time they invited seniors.
Visitor: C Dwight Coleby
Love when a program pulls out all the stops and brings in only one recruit for the entire weekend. Rick Ray rolls out the red carpet.
Visitor: ESPN 100 PF Kyle Washington
Bigs who can actually score are not bountiful in this class. Washington can catch, turn and score, as well as rebound out of his area.
Think the Irish planned this one out? Top target Jackson visits and he’ll be flanked by both Notre Dame commitments so far (Beachem and Vasturia). Enjoy the Michigan game, boys.
Visitors: VJ King, SG Josh Jackson
These are two of the best freshmen in America. A year from now, the names will roll off your tongue.
Visitors: C Neville Fincher, SG Shannon Evans
Neither is an official visit, but both are Hargrave guys you can read about from the Fall Prep Tour.
Visitor: ESPN 100 PF Aaron Gordon
Former Oakland Soldiers teammate Dominic Artis is the Ducks' point man on this visit. Can he drop a dime with Junior Blake Griffin?
Two guys who are getting Big East attention are on the A-10 campus. The Hurleys love their NYC-area prospects.
Visitor: ESPN 100 PG Roddy Peters
He has this trip and one to UCLA in early October remaining. Rutgers employs David Cox, who used to coach Peters’ D.C. Assault travel team.
Visitor: SG Ahmad Fields
Scorer alert. The Hawks watched him at the Hoop Group Elite Camp in the all-star game.
Visitor: PF Ben Moore
Last weekend, the Mustangs had their big party highlighted by Jordan Mickey.
Rimmer broke up with his girlfriend (Florida) and got right back on the horse and started dating again. Is this a rebound relationship?
Visitor: PF Hunter Myers
Another spring riser, Myers is a borderline Top 100 player and a valuable versatile power forward with a personality that fits the Stanford profile.
Visitor: PG Michael Williams
San Antonio will kick out a good player each year. This point guard is high on the Horned Frogs' radar.
Visitor: PG Travon Landry
Visitors: Davonte Fitzgerald, C Chuck Ogbodo
The Aggies have a bead on Ogbodo as they continue looking under rocks for unpolished bigs to turn into gems.
Clark’s trip isn’t in stone, but how about Danny Manning putting together a sneaky good recruiting weekend? He’s appealing to Perry’s rawness with his rep for working with bigs.
Visitor: SG R.J. Currington
The Indiana native and Oak Hill wing can score. Can the Seahawks?
Clark and Irogebu would give the Hokies a dose of ACC-level athleticism at their respective positions.
Visitor: SG Miles Overton
Overton’s dad played in the NBA. So did Wake assistant Rusty LaRue, and Jeff Bzdelik coached in the Association. Connection made.
Visitor: PF Torren Jones
The Cougars could use a player of Jones’ athletic ability in their frontcourt.
Visitor: PG Prentiss Nixon
We’ve got Nixon down for weekend trips to Iowa and Madison. Does he make both?
