Matthews Making His Rounds

Sneedville (TN) Hancock County small forward Mike Matthews is in the throngs of a seven-day, three-city tour of a few southern programs. Matthews is visiting Tennessee Tech and East Tennessee State this weekend and recently returned home from a trip to Western Carolina.

Matthews On Tour

Last weekend, SF Mike Matthews completed a successful recruiting visit to Western Carolina and now one third of official visit tour is over.

He's leaving for Tennessee Tech in the middle of the week and will be at ETSU this weekend, his father confirmed with BlueChipHoops.

"If he's sold on one school and feels comfortable, then he'll go ahead and make a commitment," the elder Matthews said. "It's kind of unusual to have three visits … bang, bang, bang … but that's what worked out well for us."

Matthews essentially had to speed up his recruitment for a number of reasons. Later in the month, he's playing at the Charlie Weber event with the Tennessee Travelers. He'll also take the SAT again and then will have his wisdom teeth removed, so finding time for official visits wasn't easy.
