Thought I would update you folks on what I am hearing on Josh Huestis’s recruitment. This comes from a few sources, but the major source is from Eric Bossi from Scout.com who writes for the USC and Stanford scout site among others.
Josh took an official visit to USC last week end and seemed to really enjoy the trip. It sounds like a lot of his concerns about USC – they face NCAA sanctions – and its coaches were answered. Here is a quote about his trip.
“I had a great time. I got to meet all the players, other recruits and the coaches. I really liked everybody,” Huestis told SC Playbook. “There’s been those rumors circulating about Coach O’Neill and how he is as a coach and person, I got to see for myself and he’s a great guy.”
I have also heard that Josh has started hosting in home visits with college coaches. I hear Harvard was in for an official visit this past Wednesday, Oregon State was scheduled to be in yesterday (Thursday), with Colorado coming in today (Friday), USC will visit Sunday, Stanford in on the 14th and Rice on the 15th. Additionally, Georgetown and Gonzaga are trying to schedule home visits also. Rivals.com is reporting that Josh will be visiting Harvard this weekend (Sept. 11-13) but I believe the trip is scheduled for next week-end (Sept 18-20). I believe Josh would also like to set up an official visit with Stanford.
In Bossi article Josh said he hopes to commit before the start of his basketball practice.
