Every week, BTPowerhouse’s Big Ten Morning Power Bar will detail what’s going on across the league on the recruiting trail.
With the march toward regular season play comes the approach of college basketball’s early signing period. While some may commit prior, the recruiting work being put in now comes with the hope of dividends in November.
Let’s take a look at this week’s recruiting headlines.
Immanuel Quickley cuts Maryland from top four list
After the Terps have been looking like a legitimate contender for the services of Quickley, the 2018 point guard removed Maryland from his top four list due to "lack of communication."
The No. 3 point guard in the class of 2018, Quickley's final three consists of Kentucky, Miami (FL) and Kansas.
While the loss of Quickley takes a hit on Maryland's recent recruiting momentum, the Terrapins are still in the conversation for top-10 point guard Devon Dotson.
Jake Forrester sets three official visits, including Indiana
A top-150 prospect in the 2018 class, the 6-foot-8 power forward will make three official visits: Indiana, Xavier, and Virginia Tech.
Forrester will visit Bloomington on September 8th, and his other two visits will follow. If Archie Miller ends up landing Forrester, the Hoosiers will have three forwards in the incoming class of 2018 including Race Thompson who reclassified from the 2018 class to 2017.
A commitment is expected around signing day in November.
Noah Locke visits Ohio State
A four-star guard, Locke visited Columbus on Wednesday as part of his five official visits.
Along with Ohio State, Locke is also visiting Providence, Xavier, Michigan, and Florida over the next month. Also, Locke will take an unofficial to Virginia this weekend.
Locke is the No. 15 ranked point guard in the class of 2018 according to 247Sports.com.
