Austin Colbert Visits Illinois, New Target to Attend Midnight Madness

As we laid out two weeks ago, not too many options remain for Seton Hall in the Class of 2013. The highest ranked of said options is forward Austin Colbert (Gill St. Bernards, N.J.), who took his official visit to Illinois this past weekend. As expected, Colbert took in Illinois' football game on Saturday in which the Illini were demolished 35-7 at the hands of Penn State. I've looked, but I can't find any articles about Austin's trip to Champaign, which isn't to say it didn't go well (as we know by now: all visits go well). Colbert is scheduled to take an official to Vanderbilt for their Midnight Madness event, which, by the looks of it, hasn't even been scheduled yet.

While recruiting news has slowed down to a trickle, there are several notable bits of information:

Seton Hall and Boston College have offered 2013 G/F Garland Owens (Massanutten Military Academy, Va.) The senior wing has reportedly blown up since his performance at the Reebok Camp this summer. UTEP was Garland's most notable offer before Seton Hall & Boston College came calling. Garland is described as inconsistent but extremely athletic with upside.

2014 PG Winston Morgan (East Catholic HS, Conn.) is scheduled to take an unofficial visit to Seton Hall next weekend for Midnight Madness on Oct. 12th (we will keep you posted on visitor lists). While there isn't tons of information on Winston, he has attracted interest from schools like Iona, Saint Joseph's, Tennessee, UConn, Ohio State and now Seton Hall -- Winston attended Tennessee's Elite Camp over the summer. Morgan is described as a "creative lead guard who is at his best playing north to south but also capable of making plays east to west" by the New England Recruiting Report.

Terry Harris (Half Hollow Hills West, N.Y.), the younger brother of Tobias Harris, is listing Seton Hall along with UConn, West Virginia, Tennessee, Alabama, Miami (Fla.) and others. A 2014 SG, Terry has recently visited UConn and Georgetown.

2013 SG Chris Thomas has re-opened his five month long commitment to Xavier. Seton Hall may or may not have been involved with Thomas late in the game but were definitely involved at one point.

While I'm not so sure the book was ever opened, we can now 'close the book' on Torian Graham, who will attend Chipola (junior) College.

VCU, Kansas State, George Mason, Maryland and High Point have all recently traveled to St. Vincent Pallotti (Md.) to watch 2014 target Tariq Owens.
