Michael Carvell of the Atlanta Journal Constitution posted an update on Georgia Mr. Basketball Marcus Thornton’s recruitment this afternoon.
Thornton recently removed Florida from his list and is still considering Georgia Tech, UGA, Clemson, Alabama, Kentucky, Texas, and Michigan.
John Beilein is expected to make his in-home visit tonight with Georgia Tech’s Paul Hewitt making a visit tomorrow:
“We want to get through one round of meeting everybody before making any decisions,” the elder Thornton said. “We have two more meetings with colleges (including Michigan coach John Beilein on Tuesday night), and then we’ll sit down as a family and discuss everything.”
Thornton has met with Mark Fox, Rick Barnes, John Calipari, Anthony Grant, and Brad Brownell over the last week. Michigan appears to be the long shot here as location has been stressed as an important factor for Thornton. Regardless of the odds, an in-home visit is an in-home visit and it seems that Thornton will give each coach their chance to impress.
