SEC leads the way on a busy weekend of Official Visits 

On the recruiting front, first-year coach Cameron Newbauer and his staff have hit the ground running as they look to rebuild the SEC program.  Last weekend the Gators hosted four-star wing Donetta Johnson, the No. 28 ranked player in the class of 2018, this weekend the Gators are busy again as they will host five-star post Valencia Myers and four-star point guard Zipporah Broughton while the football team hosts Tennessee on a big SEC Saturday.  

For Newbauer and his staff this makes three early fall weekends with them hosting ELITE 150 prospects, the Gators had Ariel Johnson on campus early this fall, Johnson later made a verbal pledge to the SEC program. In addition, the Gators have done an unofficial visit with four-star forward Jaida Patrick who is a member of the ELITE 60 in the class of 2019. This early recruiting momentum is a great sign for Gator fans.

After finishing last season as the national runners-up, Vic Schaefer and his staff are capitalizing on their success with activity on the recruiting trail. Mississippi State has already secured verbal commitments from four-star post Daphane White and three-star wing Brittany Davis.  This weekend while the football team is hosting LSU, the women’s basketball program will host two four-star targets, Jessika Carter and Xaria Wiggins. Both Carter and Wiggins are primary targets for Mississippi State this fall as both could contribute early in their careers.

After making magic happen in Seattle at the University of Washington, Arkansas coach Mike Neighbors decided to return home and take over the head coaching position at the SEC school. Neighbors and his staff have Arkansas off to a great start with A’Tyanna Gaulden and Chelsea Dungee transfers from Florida State and Oklahoma on campus.  This weekend they will focus on the 2018 class as four-star post Yo’Myris Morris and four-star wing Rokia Dumbia make the trip to visit Arkansas officially.

In addition to Louisville, DeCosta is considering Baylor, Southern Cal, South Carolina, and Tennessee.

Visits Around the Country
Four-star Jillian Archer Tours Southern Cal
This summer Archer put herself in the discussion as one of the elite rebounders in the country.  As a result, she has been heavily sought after by PAC-12 and Big 12 programs.  So far Archer has made visits to Texas Tech and Washington. This weekend is Southern Cal’s turn. 

Jordan Nixon Visits Virginia 
Four-star point guard Jordan Nixon is widely regarded as one of the elite point guards in the 2018 class. She has the ability to score and create offense in the halfcourt but what separates Nixon from the pack is her leadership ability. So far Nixon has taken visits to UCLA, Notre Dame, and Ohio State. This weekend Nixon will visit Virginia with Georgia still on the hook for a visit later this fall. 

Taylor Chavez at Washington 
Class of 2018 guard Taylor Chavez will spend the weekend at the University of Washington. Last weekend Chavez toured Baylor with her summer teammate Caitlyn Bickle.
