McGhee returns from WKU, to take more visits

Jabari McGhee, arguably the nation's top available power forward, took an official visit to Western Kentucky this past weekend. He has two other trips planned.

Jabari McGhee, a 6-foot-7 power forward out of Chatham (Va.) Hargrave Military Academy, took an official visit to Western Kentucky this past weekend.

Hargrave coach A.W. Hamilton said the trip to Bowling Green (Ky.) went well.

"He loved the visit and he loves the staff," Hamilton told Scout.com. "They've done a great job recruiting him."

"I just think he had a great connection with coach [Ray] Harper and his staff," he added. "He enjoyed the players and going to the game. I think the atmosphere there is great for him. This was his first official visit this year."

Hamilton said Harper has been involved in McGhee's recruitment, but the entire staff has made him a priority.

"David Boyden has done a great job," Hamilton said. "Their entire staff has gotten involved. They've come down to see him. They've done a tremendous job and have developed a good relationship with him and his family."

Hamilton said McGhee has two other official visits planned.

"He's going to visit UT-Chattanooga and Florida Gulf Coast," he said.

Louisiana-Lafayette, Seton Hall and Kansas State are also involved in McGhee's recruitment.

"He's anxious to get his test score back and then kind of get serious about making a decision," Hamilton said. "We'll wait until after the season."

McGhee is regarded as a three-star prospect on Scout.com.
