D1 Nation Recruiting Visits

Three members of the D1 Nation head off on recruiting visits.  2012 G 6'2" Matt Gramling will finish quarterbacking San Antonio MacArthur tonight and then he'll hop a flight to beautiful Charleston, South Carolina birght and early Saturday morning to the Citadel.  Gramling has offers from Citadel, Army, Navy, Air Force, Monmouth, Lafayette, Bradley, New Hampshire and UT-Arlington where his godfather, Scott Cross is Head Coach.  Frankly, any of these schools will be fortunate to land Gramling who is tough as nails and a winner.  He went head to head against the country's top guards all spring and summer leading the Texas D1 Ambassadors -San Antonio to the 17U Las Vegas Live Platinum Championship.

Stretch 3/4 man Connor Lammert continues his official visits.  After visiting Vanderbilt and Texas A&M last week he made the 90 minute drive up Interstate 35 from San Antonio to Austin where he'll enjoy an official visit with the Texas Longhorns, tour the facilities, watch the football game and listen to Coach Rick Barnes' plans for him.  Lammert has already taken two unofficials to The 40 Acres. Lammert will take a week off for homecoming and then take his final official visit to Texas Tech on September 24th.
