Next up are officials to UNLV (TBD) and Oklahoma Oct. 3-5.
“The visit was very good,” Mark Poyser, the player’s father, told SNY.tv. “We enjoyed it immensely. Coach [Luke] Murray and [Dan] Hurley and staff gave us their ‘A game in terms of hosting us. Lots of fantastic information to process. Rhode Island is top class.”
He added: “No UNLV date set yet. Coach [Dave] Rice and [Todd] Simon will be coming back to AI and then we will set the date shortly after.”
