USUStats.com has received word that 2013 Aggie Basketball commits Jalen Moore and Carson Shanks are on an official visit this weekend and will be attending the Utah State vs. Utah football game on Friday night. Also in attendance will be Idaho prep standout Jared Stutzman on an unofficial visit. Moore and Shanks both committed to play for the Aggies last, and will each join the team for the 2013-14 season after completing their senior campaigns this year.
Jalen Moore is a 6-7 (sometimes listed at 6-8) wing player playing in Cache Valley for the Sky View Bobcats. Moore, the son of Aggie great Jimmy Moore is known for his athleticism and scoring ability. He has received high praise this summer after a very good AAU showing with the Utah Pump-N-Run.
Carson Shanks is a 7 foot, 225 lb center from Minnesota playing his high school ball at Prior Lake High School. Shanks received offers from Utah, Nebraska, Colorado State and Northern Iowa before committing to Utah State. He was also receiving interest from several other high major schools.
Jared Stutzman is a 2014 recruit that currently holds offers from Utah State, Utah, Weber State, Idaho State and Portland. He is a wing player with good size that is a very good shooter and scorer. He has been the star at Bonneville High School in Idaho since his freshman year.
Besides these three basketball recruits, there will also be two football recruits in attendance on Friday night in Justin Sweet and Ryan Smith, both out of Bishop Gorman in Las Vegas.
The Utah State vs. Utah game is already sold out and promises to be a very competitive contest. Hopefully the Aggies can give these potential recruits a good show and come out victorious in this year’s Battle of the Brothers.
