Colorado State Hosting Three Basketball Recruits This Weekend

The Colorado St. Rams basketball team is having a big weekend in recruiting by having three recruits on official visits this weekend. The three players are Jordan MasonJermaine Morgan and Gavin Thurman, the latter two are both three-star prospects. Of the three Thurman would be the biggest catch for the Rams, and currently he holds seven other offers from Drake, Iowa, Fresno State, Missouri State, Nevada, Western Kentucky and Wichita State.

Thurman's visit to the Rams is his first official visit and then he plans on visiting Wichita State on Sept. 16. After the Wichita State visit he plans to set up visits to Iowa and Missouri State and once Thurman completes his official visits he will make a decision. Here is Thurman describing his playing ability:

"I think I am good at a lot of things," Thurman said when asked for his strengths on the court. "I am a good ball handler, I am known for my shooting. I have a lot of good footwork in the post. "I think this summer I got better as far as not settling for jump shots as much as attacking the rim and working on my footwork on defense. I got a lot better on defense and as a rebounder too."

Last season Thurman averaged 21 points, eight boards and five assists per game and he is an athletic wing player that can play the small forward or shooting guard position at the college level.

Here are highlights of Jermaine Morgan:

 

Morgan is the other three-star recruit who is visiting the Rams this weekend, and he would be a defensive presence for the Rams as he averaged 10 points, 12 rebounds and three blocks last season. Head coach Tim Miles is quite high on Morgan if he does become a Ram:

"(CSU Coach Tim) Miles has told me they want me to be a key guy, to give them a lot of minutes and be an all-around player. They want me to just help them win games in the Mountain West Conference. They just want me to help the team out and play huge minutes."

Currently Morgan has offers from Iowa, Minnesota, Nevada and LaSalle.

The third player visiting is shooting guard Jordan Mason who currently is not ranked by Rivals, (most likely he has not been evaluated) but is considered one of the top players in the state of Texas. Mason has the ability to score against any defender and reads the court well. His only downside is that he needs to take a lot of shots to be productive on offense. Mason has other offers from Houston, South Alabama, Tulane and Texas-Arlington.
