It's been a busy month of recruiting at VCU and that slows down no time soon as recent visit, Marcus Santos-Silva, has narrowed his list down to just two teams: VCU and Temple.

The 6'8 250-lb big announced via Twitter today he has narrowed his list to those two after taking an official visit to VCU this past weekend. He had previously taken an official to Temple as well.

A Rivals top-150 player out of Vermont Academy, Santos-Silva could be the second 2017 recruit to pop for VCU after explosive top-100 point guard, Lavar Batts, committed to the Rams earlier this month.

ESPN top-100 big Mayan Kiir will take an official visit to VCU next month according to Illinois blogger Kedric Prince who spoke with 2017 VCU target. Kiir will be heading to Broad Street just in time for VCU's Black v Gold game on October 22.

<p dir="ltr" lang="en"><a href="">#illini</a> bball recruiting target Mayan Kiir told me Oct. 22nd he's visiting VCU. Wed of this week he'll know when he's coming to Illinois.

Kiir holds several offers from high-major programs including the Rams. Will Wade visited Kiir's Victory Rock Prep school last week to watch the 6'9 power forward

VCU will host at least two more bigs before Kiir gets to campus. The Rams will welcome 6'9 ESPN 4-star Sean Mobley to VCU for an official visit this weekend, then follow that up with yet another 4-star visit when they host 6'8 Blue Ridge native Aamir Simms the following weekend.​
