Other key visits this weekend… • Five-star forward Jarred Vanderbilt (No. 23) heads to TCU for an unofficial visit. The Horned Frogs have moved into a good spot for Vanderbilt since hiring Corey Barker, Vanderbilt's cousin, as an assistant coach. Former New Mexico center Nikola Skecic will also be on campus. • Tennessee welcomes Isaiah Stokes (No. 60) and four-star forward Tyler Polley. • No. 51 Ethan Thompson heads to Oregon State for his official visit. The Beavers' conducted an in-home visit on Sunday, and they have the edge in his recruitment: Thompson's father is an assistant coach and his brother plays for the Beavers. • Xavier Tillman (No. 75) takes his official visit to Michigan State, two weeks after going there on an unofficial visit. Purdue, Florida and Marquette are also in the mix. • Justin Smith (No. 80) cut his list to four this week, and will visit Villanova this weekend. He took a trip to Indiana last weekend, was at Xavier earlier this month, and will visit Stanford later this month. • Anthony Gaines (Butler), Devontae Shuler (South Carolina), Evan Battey (Miami), Jamal Cain (Marquette), Abu Kigab (Illinois), Victor Uyaelunmo (USC), Darryl Morsell (Notre Dame) and C.J. Roberts (Missouri) are some other visits to keep an eye on.
