Eddie Jordan and company got back out on the road today, trying to fill up the rest of their 2015 class, and who knows?  Maybe even look at some 2016 players.

Jordan was spotted today at Roselle Catholic, one of the first to meet with Isaiah Briscoe.

Briscoe, however, has really blown up his recruiting. Once thought to only have 5 schools left on his list--St. John's, Seton Hall, Villanova, Rutgers, and Arizona--now he has many more. Last night, Adam Zagoria tweeted that Kentucky was going to have an in home with Briscoe on September 18, and Georgia Tech was trying to get involved. UConn--once thought out of it--is now back in the picture as well. Briscoe will take an official visit there. An already difficult recruitment is getting more so.

Jordan and Shoes Vetrone didn't stop there, though. They immediately got on a plane and went to hang out with Corey Sanders:

Hopefully, Jordan and Shoes are hoping Sanders helps them recruit some other talent as well

Meanwhile, Zagoria and Jerry Carino reported Rutgers would be out with about a million other schools checking out 2016 blue chip recruit from Edison, Tyus Battle.

Jordan's best signing came last week, however. Eddie Jordan and Rutgers "signed" 11 year old super-fan Sean Moffitt. In a word where most of the news is bad, this is a story that should be getting more play. Great job by Jordan and the rest of the Scarlet Knights. Make sure you give this story a read.
