Quick Take: Upshaw just announced that he has cut his list down to four schools -- Georgetown, Louisville, Fresno State and Kansas State. All four have been in for in-home visits and Upshaw wants to take official visits to each of the schools remaining on his list. Originally, Upshaw was planning to commit and sign in the spring, but now the fall is a much more likely option.
Recruiting: Georgetown, Louisville, Fresno State and Kansas State

Quick Take: It's been a long recruitment for Winston Shepard, and don't expect it to end anytime soon. Shepard will make a spring decision, and all the schools on his list are legitimate candidates to land him. The first visit will be on Oct. 14 to New Mexico, where he'll take in the Lobos' Midnight Madness. He'll visit all of the schools on his list before making a decision.
Recruiting: Oklahoma State, UTEP, UNLV, New Mexico, San Diego State

Size: 7-9/190 |
Quick Take: Johnson is three official visits in. He's been to N.C. State, UNC and Florida. Next up is Clemson. Word on the street is Johnson is more focused on N.C. State and Florida, but the 6-foot-9 jumping bean hasn't confirmed those claims and rumors surfaced this week that UNC is making another run at him. His last visit was to Florida and his visit to Clemson will go down in the next few weeks. He should have his college decision prior to the November signing period.
Recruiting: North Carolina State, North Carolina, Florida, Clemson

Size: 7-6/200 |
Quick Take: At one point in time Goodman was committed to Villanova, but he decided to open things up after the July circuit. For Goodman that is probably a function of his academics as much as anything. Currently it is seems far more likely that he ends up in the 2013 class than him making a pledge in 2012, though that is still his stated goal. At the moment it seems like he is hitting the reset button on his recruitment.
Recruiting: Villanova, UCLA, USC, Georgetown, Rutgers

Size: 6-4/175 |
Quick Take: Graham's recruitment appears to be a bit of a mystery. He's yet to take any official visits. Maryland has positioned themselves nicely with the athletic wing and Baylor, Memphis, Connecticut and OSU are involved as well. He's supposed to visit the Terps in the near future, but a visit has not been finalized.
Recruiting: Memphis, UConn, OSU, Maryland

Size: 7-6/205 |
Quick Take: With recent official visits to Kansas and West Virginia under his belt, White, a four-star shooter, will take a trip to Louisville this coming weekend and then to Texas the weekend of the 22nd. WVU and Louisville seemed to have emerged as the leaders, but according to White there isn't a timetable and he is planning to take both remaining visits.
Recruiting: Louisville, West Virginia, Texas, Kansas

Size: 7-11/210 |
Quick Take: The talented shot blocker that ranks as a four-star prospect will take his fourth official visit this weekend to Arkansas. He's already taken trips to Texas A&M, Texas and Vanderbilt. Shortly after his visit with the Razorbacks, Ibeh is expected to announce his college choice.
Recruiting: Arkansas, Texas A&M, Texas, Vanderbilt

Size: 7-9/225 |
Quick Take: Edosomwan has already taken official visits to USC and Harvard. Up next for the power forward will be trips to Washington, Texas and California before making a decision. Heading into his final three visits, USC is the school with the best chance of landing Edosomwan.
Recruiting: USC, Harvard, Washington, Texas, California

Size: 6-11/170 |
Quick Take: Fresh off his UCLA decommitment, expect Dominic Artis to get significant recruiting attention from across the country. UCLA is still the public leader, while Oregon and California have also been named. Our prediction is that Oregon makes a serious push here. Artis is friends with current Duck Jabari Brown and Oregon did a good job recruiting the point guard before he committed to UCLA.
Recruiting: UCLA, Oregon, California

Size: 7-9/205 |
Quick Take: Rosco Allen recently narrowed his college list to four schools -- UNLV, Stanford, UNC and Oregon. He has taken officials to UNLV and Stanford and will head to Oregon the weekend of midnight madness and then to North Carolina for the last weekend of October. Allen recently told Scout.com he may wait and commit and sign on signing day.
Recruiting: UNLV, Stanford, North Carolina, Oregon

Size: 6-4/175 |
Quick Take: Wallace has lined up four official visits and the plan is for him to take all four before making a decision. Colorado, California, Fresno State and Oregon have all lined up visits, and it's anyone's game heading into those trips. Colorado and California have probably done the best job recruiting him to date, but Fresno State and Oregon are getting visits because they're being seriously considered as well.
Recruiting: Colorado, California, Fresno State, Oregon

Size: 7-8/220 |
Quick Take: California and St. Mary's have both received official visits from Verhoeven, with Stanford set to get one this weekend. He'll make a decision following all three trips. Stanford is usually tough to beat in a recruitment like this, but the jobs that the Cal and St. Mary's coaching staffs have done can't be discounted.
Recruiting: Stanford, California, St. Mary's

Size: 7-10/260 |
Quick Take: The big man who is now at Oak Hill has taken a pair of official visits. One has been to Minnesota and the other to Cincinnati. A third trip to Purdue will be taken at the end of the month. At the moment those three schools have the best chance, though Purdue might have the slight edge given their distance from his hometown of Gary, Indiana. Still Hammons is not yet in decision making mode, and would field more calls if they come.
Recruiting: Minnesota, Cincinnati, Purdue, Dayton

Size: 7-7/185 |
Quick Take: Over the course of his recruitment, Bail, a 6-foot-7 forward, has picked up interest from programs such as St. John's, Houston, Texas Tech, Oregon, FSU, Maryland, Kansas, Texas A&M and plenty. However his recruitment has been somewhat of a mystery. With that said, some think Texas Tech is in good shape, as they had him on campus recently. Bail is planning to make his college choice on Sunday.
Recruiting: Texas Tech, Houston, Oregon

Size: 7-7/250 |
Quick Take: Charles Mitchell is a savvy low post scorer who has drawn attention recently from numerous high major schools. Right now a leader is seemingly very up in the air, but Maryland, Florida State, Tennessee, Rhode Island, Seton Hall, and Iowa are all involved in his recruitment. Right now it is unclear if he intends to decide early or not.
Recruiting: Maryland, FSU, Tennessee, Rhode Island, Seton Hall, Iowa

Size: 7-9/235 |
Quick Take: A late blooming big man, Washburn opened up eyes in a big way during the July evaluation period. Washburn pulled in high-major offers from schools like Texas A&M, Marquette, Maryland, Oklahoma State, Missouri, and Texas Tech, but some around the situation feel that UTEP could be the team to beat. Still visits will be taken, and Washburn has remained fairly quiet about where his recruitment stands.
Recruiting: UTEP, Maryland, Texas A&M, Texas, Texas Tech, Missouri, Oklahoma State, Oregon, Providence
