Welcome to another edition of Recruiting Roundup! Today, we will break down Sam Hauser's official visit, and provide an update on a key 2016 football recruit.
Nine Out of Ten:
Over the weekend, the Virginia basketball program welcomed 2016 forward Sam Hauser to grounds for an official visit. Hauser picked up an offer from UVa several weeks ago, and decided to take his first allotted official visit to the two-two defending ACC Regular Season Champions.
So how did it go?
According to SBNation's own Devonte Brooks, Hauser rated his visit to Charlottesville a "Nine out of Ten." This is excellent news, seeing as how the 6-6, 190 pound small forward will be comparing his upcoming visits to his time on grounds. Speaking of future trips, Hauser will likely take official visits to both Creighton and Marquette before making a decision. The Golden Eagles are viewed as the favorites right now, but the Wahoos obviously made quite an impression this weekend. Can Virginia unseat the home state school and add Hauser to an already loaded class of 2016? Only time well tell.
According to a blog on USATodayhss.com, 2017 five-star small forward Michael Porter Jr. is looking to plan a visit to UVa. Porter, who is rated as the number two player in the entire class of 2017 by both Rivals and ESPN stated in the blog that he would like to visit both Virginia and Washington soon. The 6-8 small forward has plenty of time and there is a ton of competition here, but the blue chipper does have a connection to UVa. Porter is longtime friends with 2016 commit Kyle Guy. Guy, who has been an an active recruiter for the Wahoos for awhile now would cement his legend before he even steps onto the court at JPJ if the sharpshooter could help reel in Porter. Once again, there is plenty of time left in this one, and Porter will be able to choose from just about every program in the country.
Switching over to football, where Virginia will now have more time to make an impression on a key recruit. We told you several weeks ago that 2016 Woodberry Forest offensive tackle Clark Yarbrough would decide this month, but the four-star lineman has pumped the breaks so to speak. Last Thursday, Yarbrough tweeted out that he intends to decide sometime in June, hinting that he may need to take a few more visits before making the call. Earlier this spring, Yarbrough released a top five consisting of Clemson, Duke, Florida, Stanford, and the Wahoos.
Many people view Stanford as the clear favorites to land the talented lineman, so this is probably good news for the rest of the field.
That will do it for this week's roundup. See ya!
