Review of Xavier's Scholarship Breakdown

Posted by Josh on Sunday, July 24, 2016, In : Recruiting/Roster Updates 
Thanks to Coach Mack and company, seems like most Xavier off-seasons are about reloading, not rebuilding. This off-season is no exception.  Practice for Xavier's 95th men's hoops team has already begun and new to the Musketeers this year are Freshmen Quentin Goodin, Tyrique Jones, and Eddie Ekiyor, as well as 5th-year Senior transfer, Malcolm Bernard.

Xavier has also received a verbal commitment from 3-start Small Forward Jared Ridder, out of Springfield, MO. Ridder will be a Freshman on the 2...

Xavier lands another highly rated commit for 2016

Posted by Josh on Wednesday, October 7, 2015, In : Recruiting/Roster Updates 
Xavier got a verbal commitment from a 3-star big man out of Canada today. That's the 3rd recruit who's committed to Xavier for the 2016 class, all inside of or flirting with the Top 100 ranking list of 2016 prospects.

Nice job XU coaching staff! Now let's enjoy the 2015 season!

Xavier gets verbal from Center Sean O'Mara

Posted by Josh on Tuesday, October 8, 2013, In : Recruiting/Roster Updates 
Xavier nabbed a 4th player for their 2014 class, Center Sean O'Mara. Current 2014 team recruiting rankings now have Xavier in the top 10 classes. Once some of the top high school players commit, X is likely to drop a few spots, but this is a great class no matter how you slice it. Two 3-star and two 4-star players in the Class of 2014 now.

Meanwhile, 4-star SF Trevon Bluiett has de-committed from UCLA. Xavier was one of his top choices before he committed to UCLA and many are reporting XU is b...

Xavier reels in 4-star player Makinde London!

Posted by Josh on Wednesday, September 25, 2013, In : Recruiting/Roster Updates 

Minutes ago, 4-star Power Forward Makine London committed to Xavier! London is a 6'9", 210lb talented kid playing down in Montverde, FL. Scout.com has him as the #71 player overall (#16 PF) in the 2014 class.

London joins J.P. Macura (4 star Guard, #20 SG on Scout) and Edmund Sumner (3 star Guard, #27 SG on Scout) as Chris Mack & Co. continue to load up the 2014 class. Can't wait to see this talented trio join the team next year.

Expect one more kid to be signed for 2014. Sean O'Mara, a 3-star...

Xavier Recruiting Week Continues!

Posted by Josh on Saturday, May 18, 2013, In : Recruiting/Roster Updates 
Remy Abell, former Indiana Hooser, announced just hours ago that he will be transferring to Xavier. He'll have to sit out this coming season and then will have 2 years of eligibility.

While you might be asking why Xavier would want a guy who only played 12.5 min/gm last year, don't forget who else was on Remy's roster. The team was loaded with All American candidates and future NBA stars.

So that's the 3rd Musketeer reeled in this week! 2014 Detroit guard Edmond Sumner and 2013 Bulgarian forwar...

HELLO BULGARIA! Another new Musketeer is named

Posted by Josh on Friday, May 17, 2013, In : Recruiting/Roster Updates 

Chris Mack's quick trip to Europe between games a few months ago has paid off huge. Aleksander Vezenkov, a 6'8" forward from Bulgaria, committed to Xavier yesterday. AND he will be enrolling this fall and should be eligible immediately.

There has been some debate on his eligibility due to him playing on a pro team in Greece. He has never signed a pro contract or been paid to play for the team so he meets all NCAA guidelines regarding this issue.

Vez (much easier to write and say than his full n...

Xavier staff gets verbal commitment from 2014 PG Edmond Sumner

Posted by Josh on Monday, May 13, 2013, In : Recruiting/Roster Updates 
Travis Steele and company reeled in a 2014 commitment from a Detroit-area point guard last night. Edmond "Skinny" Sumner" is a 6'2", 160 pounder who has just recently come up on big schools' radar. As a point guard, he'd be the likely man to fill in the shoes of Semaj Christon, should Semaj leave for the NBA after this coming season or next.

Credit Coach Steele & Xavier for finding Edmond early on and being the first college program to show interest in Skinny.

Sumner joins Melvin Swift as 2014 ...

Top 2013 Guard Chris Thomas decommits

Posted by Josh on Monday, October 1, 2012, In : Recruiting/Roster Updates 
Once considered a top 10 player nationally, Chris Thomas has taken a step back from his verbal commitment to Xavier. Chris Mack met with his family in Denver last week and all appeared to be well but Thomas wants to be courted by the top programs as many of his current teammates are experiencing. Hard to say if this is the main reason for him taking a step back right now.  It's hard to not wonder if the administration's handling of Dez Wells earlier this summer didn't have a negative impact.

Xavier lands #5 overall rated 2013 player Chris Thomas

Posted by Josh on Thursday, April 5, 2012, In : Recruiting/Roster Updates 
Several sources have just reported that 6'5" Shooting Guard Chris Thomas has committed to Xavier.  He's from Denver but has jumped around to several schools and will be playing in Junior College this fall to qualifty for Division I basketball.

Chris Mack and Rasheen Davis are responsible for reeling in this big-time scoring guard.  Incoming Freshman Semaj Christon will be the first 5-star recruit to start his Division I college career at Xavier this fall.  And Thomas will be the second!  Two f...
