Calm before Midnight Madness storm

Ibeh prince 200 9 1
Not surprisingly, the list of weekend visitors for this second weekend of October is relatively light. After all, the majority of programs are loading up for Midnight Madness events next weekend, while a few will hold them the following weekend.
Still, there are some visits of note and we'll touch on a few of them.
Things got started in Oregon last night. The Ducks rolled Cal on the gridiron and they had three-star Ben Carter and four-star Tyrone Wallace on hand to watch as they started their weekend visits.
The nation's 14th-ranked player in the class of 2013, Troy Williams, will be among the many players in Louisville this weekend for John Lucas' exposure camp. Today, the 6-foot-6 wing is planning on making stops at both Kentucky and Louisville for quick visits.
Speaking of Rick Pitino's Cardinals, Louisville will host 2012 four-star wing Andrew White this weekend. White, has visited West Virginia and Kansas over the past couple of weekends. Also expected to swing by is 2013's No. 2 player Jabari Parker, who like Williams above is in town for John Lucas' camp.
Down in SEC country, Arkansas and Alabama will each host near 7-foot shot-blockers who can really run. The Razorbacks will put their best foot forward with Prince Ibeh while the Crimson Tide hosts Willie Cauley.
One more SEC school will have an important visitor on hand as five-star power forward Jarnell Stokes makes his way to Knoxville to see Tennessee. Stokes will be joined on his visit by ranked three-star point guard Adonis Filer and three-star big man Landen Lucas. 2014 five-star Jaquan Lyle had been mentioned as a possible visitor, but it doesn't appear he'll be making it this weekend.
UNLV's Dave Rice and staff have a very important visitor in four-star Arizona wing DeMarquise Johnson. "Que" is thought to be leaning toward heading to school in the state of Washington (Washington, Washington State and Gonzaga have all received visits) but the 6-foot-5 wing is now making his second visit to Las Vegas and the Rebels recently had a strong in-home visit. Committed Rebel Demetris Morant will be on hand as well.
Down at Clemson, 2013 four-star shooting guard Sindarius Thornwell will be on campus again. The powerful 6-foot-4 wing has already been to Clemson on several occasions. Also expected on campus are 2013 Rivals150 big man Desmond Ringer, 2014 wing Josh Level and 2015's Seventh Woods.
Back on the West Coast, Stanford will host a very important target in three-star big man Grant Verhoeven while not too far away California gets their chance to impress ranked three-star big man Zena Edosomwan on his official visit.
In other Pac-12 visit news, Utah will host California combo forward Richard Longrus on his official visit.
Gonzaga is expected to host three-star face-up forward Chris Reyes while Iowa State hosts shooting guard commmitment Sherron Dorsey-Walker for his official visit.
