All the news that is news regarding who Xavier is recruiting and who is going to end up on campus.

Exactly what it says it is.
Xavier offers G Brandon Randolph
Brandon Randolph, a class of 2017 SG from Westtown (PA), just picked up an offer from Xavier.— Pat Lawless (@PatLawless_) January 29, 2016
No, not that one. This Brandon Randolph is a class of 2017 SG out of Westtown, Pa. I really want this to happen.
2017 wing Jaylen Sebree talked with Scout about his visit to Xavier
Sebree is a four-star recruit right now, but he is drawing interest from the highest of high-major programs. Xavier's roster construction will leave some minutes for off-ball perimeter players from the class of 2017 right away, so the Muskies might have a leg up on this one.
WATCH: Xavier commit Eddie Ekiyor doing work at both ends
Ekiyor is in high school action for the last time before heading down to join the Musketeers after the semester break. He'll redshirt the second half of this year and have all four years of eligibility left.
Xavier offers four-star 2017 PG Nojel Eastern
Four-star junior Nojel Eastern tells ESPN he has picked up an offer from Xavier.— Jeff Borzello (@jeffborzello) December 3, 2015
It's weird to me to be thinking about our next PG when our starting PG is a freshman, but that's the world we live in. Eastern is 6'5", 185 and already holds offers from Michigan State, Purdue, Missouri, Marquette, and Illinois. There are rumors that his role in college may be off the ball, but he's a point guard for now and Xavier seems to be recruiting him as such.
Bruce Brown announces final two, forgets to include Xavier
2016 Vermont Academy (VT) guard Bruce Brown will announce between Indiana & Miami on Wednesday, per @JeffRabjohns.— Alex Kline (@TheRecruitScoop) November 16, 2015
With Brown headed elsewhere and Eddie Ekiyor enrolling early, Xavier's 2016 class is comprised of Tyrique Jones and Quentin Goodin. Xavier is technically at the scholarship limit for next year already, but all signs point to Jalen freeing one up. Further bulletins as events warrant.

Xavier target 2016 guard Bruce Brown will not decide in the early period
Recruiting News: Bruce Brown tells ESPN that he will not make a decision during the early period. Miami, IU, UMASS & Xavier involved.— Paul Biancardi (@PaulBiancardi) November 10, 2015
Brown is a top 50 guard with a smooth stroke and a lot of strength going to the hole. He has already visited Xavier and Indiana and is scheduled to be on Purdue's campus this weekend. Most analysts believe he'll end up at one of the Big Ten schools, but ESPN's Jeff Borzello tipped Brown to choose Xavier earlier this week.
Xavier possibly leading for 4* 2016 G Bruce Brown
Adding Brown would make a monster 2016 class for Xavier.
Eddie Ekiyor comes with some baggage
Eddie Ekiyor is certainly a good basketball player, but he'll arrive on Xavier's campus with a bit of a past.
Xavier lands 2016 big man
Eddie Ekiyor joins the 2016 Xavier recruiting class. A slightly unpolished big with the potential to break out, he represents another coup for Chris Mack.

For what it's worth, Scout has him going to Illinois. Sneed is on Xavier's campus this weekend.

Kansas State and Xavier were in to see Hazelwood Central/STL Eagles 2016 G Xavier Sneed @Luh_Sneed20 on Wednesday. Illinois comes in today— Prep Hoops Missouri (@PrepHoopsMO) September 10, 2015
Having backed off of Xavier Simpson, Xavier is still in on another Xavier for 2016. Sneed is an athletic wing with the tools and demeanor to be a disruptive perimeter defender.
Four star big man Taurean Thompson on official visit to Xavier this weekend
Thompson is a PF in the 2016 class with interest from Syracuse, Rutgers, and Maryland among others. He has other visits scheduled but it's still possible that he might commit to Xavier while on campus.

Christian County 2017 wing Jaylen Sebree (@Jay2Sebree) says he had great visit with Xavier & Chris Mack this weekend. pic.twitter.com/NAIO0jUYpE— Chris Jung (@ChrisJungKNE) August 23, 2015
I wonder if Coach Mack was a little bummed on the inside and had to act like it was cool that Fultz and Simmons were headed elsewhere.
Xavier target Markelle Fultz to announce tonight
Markelle Fultz (@MarkelleF) making announcement tonight on ESPNU. Lots of big boys in mix -- but don't be surprised if this is a shocker!!— Jeff Goodman (@GoodmanESPN) August 21, 2015
This would be a huge but unlikely get for Xavier.

Kobi Simmons highlights, recruitment analysis from Scout
They fail to mention Xavier as a main school involved on Simmons, an obvious slight considering his upcoming official visit to X. At least they have video.

Thompson is a highly coveted recruit with good touch inside and out. As mentioned in the link, he has several quality programs after him.
Markelle Fultz discusses recruitment, forgets to mention Xavier
This could mean something, but it could also mean nothing. Here's hoping that JuCo guy really liked Cintas.

Culver is taking an unofficial visit to the Xa ier campus today; he has already visited West Virginia, Indiana, and Purdue unofficially and plans to do the same at Michigan State and Iowa. He is around 6'10" and can score from the post or the mid-range.
