Its amazing to me that some people dont get it. These players only have a limited amount of official visits. Therefore, they and their families/teams etc. use unofficial visits to get as much information as possible prior to making a very important decision that will determine the next four years of their lives and possibly their entire lives.

Many times a kid is trying to determine if they even want to waste an official on a certain school therefore they use these unofficials a means to weed out or pair down their choices. Alternatively some use unofficials to maybe bump a school off of their list, or they use an unofficial as a supplement to their lists.

We all know a top 25 may top 40 kid pretty much know are has an idea where an what they want to do. But for others they really have no clue. Take a kid like Jahmir. We are his best offer thus far but he has a list of schools that are all different but about the same level of competition. Why not take an unofficial look to help make your decision.

There area really many scenarios that go into why a kid takes an unofficial, and why thye can be very beneficial to the schools on the list. One thing for sure, you have never heard any coach complain about unofficial visits. To the contrary coach,s especial mid majors (even high mid majors like VCU) love them.

As posted earlier, we should be happy when and unofficial happens and its a kid of Jahmir's caliber. He certainly didn't come to Richmond to tour Monument Avenue or any of our other cultural events. He has interest and for that we should be excited, or at the very list interested in the fact that he's either here or is coming.

So if a handful of you dont get it cool if you dont like the posts of DL and others cool simply ignore them However, there really is no good reason to come on a string and berate people who create the thread for berate posters or otherwise spread hate, as their are people who enjoy this information and appreciate those who provide the information.

When did we offer?
We haven't. As per usual Duncelamb was so eager to be a hero and post a new thread about an unofficial visit he spelled the kids name wrong and included information that wasn't correct...again.

You also have to rememeber we only can give 12 official visits per year, so this year with about 40 offers, many will have to take unofficial or not at all.

@duncanlamb will you please consider posting the news of unofficial visits in the Recruiting Thread? All these new threads are clogging things up around here. And from what I understand, there are so many unofficial visits, it’s just too much.
I hope you are not the type of person who will now intentionally post more of these threads just because you’ve been asked not to.

Again, @SpiderRAM playing the "civility" card.
