Three-star big man Landen Lucas is still planning to make a decision during the early signing period. However, he's added one more school to his list and will be taking one final official visit beginning today.
The 6-foot-9 senior from Portland (Ore.) Westview is on his way to Kansas for a last-second official visit before he makes a college decision.
Sean Miller won't be able to officially discuss his top rated recruiting class -- at least not as whole -- until sometime Monday afternoon. By then, the Arizona boss should have received a signed letter of intent from Grant Jerrett who is waiting until then to sign in a ceremony at La Verne (Calif.) Lutheran High.
Late last night, Miller did get a letter of intent from Kaleb Tarczewski. The five-star big man had not been expected to sign until later this afternoon but his signature was certainly welcomed a little early. Earlier in the day on Thursday, five-star forward Brandon Ashley and high four-star shooting guard Gabe York inked letters during ceremonies at Henderson (Nev.) Findlay Prep and Orange (Calif.) Lutheran.
The big man's LOI must first head to Nigeria where Uwaldiae's parents can sign and then it will be on the way to Wichita. Regardless of when that letter gets there, Gregg Marshall's crew has put together one of the Missouri Valley Conference's best recruiting classes. A three-star point guard who can control the game, Van Vleet is arguably the conference's top signee. The athletic Early has put up huge numbers through the early part of the junior college season and Green is a thin face-up forward who can really shoot the ball.
The CAA has gotten really tough over the past few years and Towson signed a class that should allow them to compete in the conference at a high level. The Tigers received signatures from four players on Thursday.
Over on the other side of the country, UNLV got letters from four-star combo guard Katin Reinhardt, ranked three-star big man Demetris Morant and still relatively unknown nationally -- but celebrated locally in Baltimore -- point guard DaQuan Cook. The class is a great starting point for new coach Dave Rice in his first year at the helm of the Rebels program.
They didn't get a ton of national fanfare for their class, but Colorado State quietly put together a very nice two-man recruiting class.
Thursday night, the Rams got word that Jordan Mason and Jermaine Morgan had put pen to paper. Both three-star prospects, Mason is an athletic scoring combo guard from Texas while Morgan is a big man with some skill and ability to run the floor from Chicago.
