Fall receives an Georgetown offer

The tallest player in the country, Tacko Fall, has received an offer from Georgetown Hoyas. Fall, who is 7-foot-5, can battle in the paint, rebound the ball and is a solid defender as well. His offensive game is okay, but his height makes up for that.

The Hoyas are trying to get another big men in if they can not get Noah Dickerson to come back or Ivan Rabb. According to a source, Georgetown really likes him a lot and thinks he would be able to help them a lot. The Hoyas are in a good spot because Fall really likes them from what I have heard. Continue to follow this because he would make a positive impact on the recruiting trail.

Brunson sets visits

Per Joe Henricksen of the Chicago Sun-Times, 2015 five-star point guard Jalen Brunson has scheduled three of his five official visits.

In early May, Brunson announced his Top 8 schools under consideration, and later on that month, rumors started to swirl around in the recruiting world that Villanova might be in the driver seat.

Then people thought that Temple would be the favorite because they was set to hire Rick Brunson as an assistant who is Jalen's father. That was going to be where Brunson was going to end up until it was reported that Rick got indicted because of sexual charges. A source told that Brunson package deal to Temple was off gone because of this.

It's likely still early days in this recruitment, but Villanova appears to be back in the mix with a solid shot to land what many consider to be the best pure point guard in the class of 2015. The Wildcats are still chasing Donovan Mitchell and Isaiah Brisoce. Mitchell took an visit to Villanova on August 4 and Briscoe has said publicly that he will not sign until the spring. In the class of 2015, Villanova has two commitments from Donte DiVincenzo and Tim Delaney and they still have three scholarships left.

Watson has two visits set

Point guard Glynn Watson, a top Creighton target, has set up official visits to Nebraska Cornhuskers and Creighton Bluejays according to his AAU Coach. The 6-foot-1, four-star guard will officially visit Nebraska on Aug. 29-30, and will be back in the state of Nebraska for an official visit at Creighton from Sept. 5-6.
