Visits – Top 40 Recruiting visits.
Coaches are deep into the recruitment of 2019 and 2020 guys since the current (2018) class has committed early.
Both 2019 SG Zach Harvey (Topeka) and 2020 PF Xavier Foster (Oskaloosa, IA) have unofficially visited the Hilltop on 23rd of September 17. No other visits have yet been publicized, but the coaches have been busy with home visits and eyeballing both classes.

Surprised that SH is ahead of X, by a lot. I don’t think they will hold up their end of the bargain. Jays will beat ’em early, as the Pirates should be feelin it early.
Only N’Western, UCLA, and the Zags are ranked by BR, no Wiscy (even though they have Happ as a 1st team AA.) or Baylor. Playing NWern at the Rosemont should help, and a neutral court for a young UCLA is great. I expect the Jays to win both (and the CBE Classic). According to the article none of the other mags have published yet.
