Over the past few weekends, many of the nation's top players have traveled across the country on official visits looking for their ideal college destination. That changes this weekend, when the bulk of the nation's top recruits head to Colorado Springs for the USA Basketball men's junior national team minicamp in Colorado Spings, Colorado.
There's one exception: Canadian Simi Shittu, ranked No. 9 on our Flo40 list, is headed to Vanderbilt for a visit.
Bryce Drew's Commodores received an at-large bid to last year's NCAA tournament after finishing the regular season -- conference tournament included -- with 15 losses. It was the highest loss tally of any team to make the NCAA Tournament. Vanderbilt lost to Northwestern in the first round.
Uncommitted prospects No. 2 Zion Williamson, No. 4 Bol Bol, No. 6 Romeo Langford, No. 7 Jordan Brown, No. 8 Darius Garland, No. 10 Keldon Johnson, No. 11 Moses Brown, and No. 15 Emmitt Williams are all attending the minicamp. So are committed prospects No. 3 Cameron Reddish (Duke), No. 5 Tre Jones (Duke), and No. 11 Immanuel Quickley (Kentucky), among others.
Although it might not be the biggest weekend in recruiting with regards to ranked players, there are still some key visits to keep an eye on from October 6-8.
