As the Cats await Terrence Jones’ word or a confirmation of the super-secret handshake or wink that might have already gone down, the focus on former Georgia’s Mr. Basketball, Marcus Thornton, still continues. The former Clemson commit is visiting Alabama today and will then head to Austin to visit the Longhorns this weekend. According to his coach in this Atlanta Journal-Constitution story that references the “Lexington Ledger-Enquirer”, Thornton plans on also visiting the Cats and Michigan. And, though it’s not relevant to this story, he attended the same high school as Pacman Jones. I feel like we should talk about him more.
