Xavier will host visit from UK transfer Charles Matthews

Matthews was a top-50 wing prospect coming out of high school and has NBA-level athleticism. He would be a good get for a Xavier team that figures to lose a lot of perimeter talent after this season.

Four-star wing Naji Marshall cuts list to five, includes Xavier

Marshall is a soon to be top-100 wing out of DC. He is long and athletic and does a good job of finishing through contact. His body is starting to fill out, and he works hard on the defensive end. Marshall has already had a visit to Xavier and has a visit to Va Tech scheduled.

You can tell from the names left on the list that Scruggs is a top recruit. He's currently 35th overall and 7th among point guards in the 2017 class according to ESPN. Xavier has been prioritizing him as a recruit, and he'd be a great add to the class. His sophomore mixtape can be found here:

Xavier offers 2018 G Eric Hunter on visit today

Hunter is a 6'3" guard who can really score the basketball. He averaged nearly 30 a game as a sophomore and dropped 50 in a win in January. Along with Xavier, he's being recruited by Butler, most schools in Indiana, and most of the Big Ten.

Xavier offers 2017 G Elias Harden

Harden is a shooting guard out of Georgia. He's about 6'6" right now and dropped 21 PPG while shooting 31% from deep as a junior. UC offered him in the winter, but his stock is rising now with Xavier and Maryland the latest high-majors to offer him a scholarship.

Xavier offers 2017 SF Jordan Nwora

Nwora is a 6'8" forward from Nigeria by way of Buffalo. He recently impressed at the Nike EYBL in Brooklyn with his effort and shooting prowess. He has offers literally from coast to coast, with USC joining X in reaching out to him this week.

Xavier recruiting 2017 SF Kaleb Hunter hard

Hunter is a lefty who lives on his smooth jumper in the half court but has the athleticism to make plays in transition. He doesn't have much of a weak hand right now, but there's still plenty of time for him to develop it. He's now starting to draw high-major interest, so Xavier is in early.

Xavier offers 2018 G Tyler Herro

As far as I can figure, his surname is pronounced "hero." Beyond that super important piece of information, you should know that Herro is a big time shooter who can also score it off the bounce, and his basketball IQ draws raves. Wisconsin and Marquette are really recruiting him hard right now.

Xavier offers 2017 G David Beatty

Beatty is a 6'4" combo guard out of Philly. He can score it at all three levels, but toughness and effort are his consistent calling cards on the court right now. Georgetown has been on him hard, and Nova, Arizona, and Arizona State are also involved.

Xavier recruiting top 2017 wing Kris Wilkes

Wilkes is a 6'7" SF put of Indy. He's a menace in transition with good length and athleticism. He's got good touch around the ring and in short mid-range, and his skills further away from the bucket are progressing. Pretty much every major school in the Midwest is involved at this point.

2017 G Paul Scruggs to visit Xavier

Scruggs is an ESPN 60 guard with good handle and impressive athletic ability. He's at his best going to the rim right now, but his jumper is coming along. Just as pertinently, he's a good perimeter defender. The big boys from the Big 10 and national powers like Kansas are also involved.

Xavier visiting 2017 F Jamal Cain

Click through to the link for some more info. Cain is a 6'7" SF with a solid jumper and good skills on the glass. X has been on him since early on, but he's rising and I would suspect most major programs in the upper Midwest to give him a look this summer.

Xavier had an in home visit with 2017 wing Naji Marshall

Marshall is a 6'5", 200 pound guard who plans to commit this summer before spending his senior year at Hargrave Military Academy. He is a solid all-around player who especially takes pride in his work at the defensive end. Xavier, Va Tech, VCU, and West Virginia lead a pack of major schools involved.

Xavier offers 2017 G Sasha Stefanovic

Stefanovic is a guard out of Crown Point, IN who averaged 15/7/5 in his high school season and shot 38% from beyond the arc. Several mid-major Indiana schools offered him early, but Michigan and Indiana are also now involved.

Xavier transfer target Katin Reinhardt commits to Marquette

It looks like Reinhardt wants to have the ball in his hands on offense, which is obviously a role Xavier isn't looking to fill. We'll be able to get a good look at what we missed when he plays 18 games in the Big East this year. I would have liked him as a three and D guy, but if he wanted more, I don't think it's worth messing with the chemistry on the roster.
