Jacob Epperson sets visit dates for Creighton, Toledo

Jacob Epperson, a 6-foot-11 post player, has scheduled a pair of visits and is finalizing a date for another.

2017 recruit Jacob Epperson has set up official visits to Toledo and Creighton and is working on another, he tells Scout. 

Epperson, a native of Australia, will visit Toledo this coming weekend. Epperson has a connection with the Rockets, as his father played his college basketball there. 

"What I like about Toledo is that it's my dads old school and knowing if I go there I have the chance to break my dads all time rebounds and points scored there," he said. [That] would be great. And how they will base the program around me.


Epperson will then visit Creighton on February 28th.  

"Creighton, I like that they won't keep me inside and do what they have done with Justin Patton, who I was apparently like at his age," Epperson said.

Following that trip, Epperson is working on setting up a trip to Utah

"[I'm] trying to get to Utah on the 3rd of March," Epperson said. 

"Utah, I like how they work with their big men and try to work the player to the best of their ability and with coach K being a former big in the league it will help a lot with my game," he added. 

The standout at La Porte (Ind.) La Lumiere said he is also looking to set up a visit to Texas.

Ranked as the No. 57 overall prospect, Epperson is one of the best available post players remaining in the 2017 class.
