On the Trail: Texas, USC & Villanova host multiple top targets

Villanova, Oklahoma State, Pitt, and Texas among the many that lead the way with a bevy of premier visitors on their campuses this weekend.

We are now just two weeks away from the first signing period as some of the top college basketball programs across the nation look to solidify their 2017 class. Furthermore, the new season is right around the corner and with greater attention placed towards the playing floor compared to the recruiting trail like in the prior few months, this weekend marks the final few days that we will see such a compressive list of visitors. Texas, Villanova, Pitt, and Oklahoma State are the places to be this weekend where each hopes to finagle a commitment or two from those headed to their campus.
