You're right. Unofficial--I misread teh original tweet. He had OV's to UNC and Stanford. Unofficials to Marquette and Purdue this week.

Good to see he's doing the visit with his Meanstreets teammate AJ Casey. Will be interesting to see how Shaka sells PT to both of them given they are sort of the same position.

Looks like this is the sort of thing the staff is doing right now:

Quote
Marquette. “Some big staff changes and upgrades to facilities in the plans…only school that showed me film with two bigs on the floor which was intriguing for mismatches and a chance for me to use my whole arsenal offensively.”

That's from Gus Yalden's interview with Zags. https://www.zagsblog.com/2021/06/24/seven-schools-involved-for-class-of-2023-big-gus-yalden/
Assume what I say should be in teal if it doesn't pass the smell test for you.

Big staff changes: New coaching staff and new position (Director of Recruiting), possibly more changes down the line

Upgrades to facilities: Sounds like Al is getting an update

Rest of the quote: Yalden doesn't just want to be a back to the basket 5 despite his size. Wants to be able to shoot threes and put the ball on the floor.
God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
The courage to change the things I can,
And the wisdom to know the difference.

Love the active hands. It's fun to see the type of player Shaka is recruiting.

But does he have a license to do it?

What facilities upgrades is he referring to?

Don't know. But I feel like its been awhile since the Al got an update. Probably something there?

Honestly, they could upgrade facilities a bit. I know they did the fitness center across the street and locker rooms. They did like refurbishing in like 2015. But i dont think they updated any of the Al offices/ social rooms or anything else in 10-15 years.

Honestly, I'm just happy the team went from like 1-2 actual coaches to 5 coaches. A recruiting and video director, and 2 program assistants.

It's a big place that's not 17+ years old. I would imagine portions get upgraded/updated pretty much every year.

2 new 2023 offers:

https://twitter.com/Miller_Report/status/1408188073091928064

Xzayvier Brown, unranked PG out of Philly. I believe we are his first high-major offer. His second best offer appears to be either Temple or VCU.

https://twitter.com/horacesimmons23/status/1408198052347887618

Horace Simmons, a SF so unranked that he doesn't have a 247 page also out of Philly. We also appear to be his first high-major offer. Second best offer appears to be St. Joe's.

Xzayvier ... I've never seen the name spelled that way. I guess it solves the pronunciation conundrum.

Morsell might be a done deal. Followed Marquette on twitter and the official twitter account hinted at it yesterday. https://twitter.com/MarquetteMBB/status/1408225269085884423?s=20
