Every Friday we will release a list of small recruiting news “nuggets” or “tidbits” they deserve mention on this site but do not necessarily require full articles. Here is this Friday’s edition of Recruiting Tidbits:
* Two teammates from Fishbourne Military Academy (Va.) committed to UIC on the same day, apparently unbeknownst to one and other. Prep school seniors Matt Gorski and Jake Wiegland both made the call for the Flames on Monday afternoon after being recruited by Donnie Kirksy. Gorski is a 7-foot center who also considered Hofstra and UAB and Wiegland is a 6’8″ forward that chose UIC over The Citadel and IUPUI. Fishbourne head coach told Scott Powers of ESPNChicago, “They play defense, rebound and really bring some toughness.” Gorski and Wiegland join Whitney Young’s Gabriel Snider as the three members of Howard Moore’s 2012 class at UIC.
* USA Men’s Basketball announced Monday the 27-player roster for their October Mini-Camp. The event will be held in Colorado Springs, CO next weekend (Oct. 15-16). The timing will prevent the attendees from checking out the Midnight Madness events going on all over the country that weekend. Some of the notable players invited to attend are Indiana 2014 verbals James Blackmon and Trey Lyles, Chicago prospects Jabari Parker, Kendrick Nunn, Paul White and Jahlil Okafor, 2013 prospects BeeJay Anya (IU interest), Charles Tucker (Mich, MSU, OSU), Larry Austin (OSU, Ill), Demonte Flannigan (OSU, Wisc), Rondae Jefferson (PSU), Jared Swopshire (Ill, Iowa, Marq, Minn, SIU) and Jonathan Williams (MSU), and 2014 Tyus Jones (IU, Iowa, Marq, Minn, OSU).
