This Week’s Recruiting News & Notes

While the recruiting news tends to slow down little by little in the weeks that follow the July evaluation period, there was still plenty of action this week.  Here is a look at some of the headlines:

• Kimball Union Academy and Expressions Elite 2014 forward Abdul-Malik Abu visited three of his final four schools this week.  After attending the Providence Elite Camp on Saturday, Abu took an unofficial visit to North Carolina State on Sunday.  He was initially scheduled to visit Connecticut on Wednesday, but ultimately rescheduled in order to travel to Florida.  No word yet on if, or when, he will now visit Connecticut;

• Cushing Academy and Mass Rivals 2014 point guard Kaleb Joseph was also in attendance at Providence’s Elite Camp last weekend.  He’ll take his first official visit this weekend, when he travels to Syracuse from Friday to Sunday.  Joseph had previously cut his list to just three schools in Providence, Syracuse, and West Virginia;

• BABC and St. Andrew’s 2014 forward Bonzie Colson picked up his latest scholarship offer from Xavier, only a few days after adding Loyola Marymount.  Colson holds numerous high-major offers at this point including Florida State, Iowa State, Notre Dame, Pittsburgh, and Seton Hall;
