A glimpse at Western Kentucky's new offers

July is without question the busiest time of year for basketball recruiting and Western Kentucky coaches were out and about among the many tournaments taking place during the live period.

As expected, the Hilltoppers have extended new offers based off their evaluations. We take a closer look at the latest targets for WKU.

OFFERS: Xavier, Houston, Georgetown, Iowa, Kansas State, Saint Louis, Nevada, Creighton

HIS RECRUITMENT: Powell attends nearby Evansville (Ind.) Bosse, so the chance to play close to home could be an appealing factor. Cincinnati and Xavier also provide that same appeal. Iowa, Houston, and Kansas State are other schools that are vying to get the three-star prospect on campus for official visits.

OFFERS: Iowa State, Kansas State, South Florida, Arkansas State, Florida International, Old Dominion

HIS RECRUITMENT: There was a lot of buzz surrounding Iowa State, Kansas State, and South Florida for the four-star prospect heading into the July live period, so it will be interesting to see if WKU can make up some ground with Miguel.

OFFERS: Western Kentucky, Grambling State

HIS RECRUITMENT: Another West Oaks Academy (Fla.) product in high school, the 6-foot-8, 255-pound forward has reset his recruiting process among the JUCO ranks with the Hilltoppers being his first offer.

OFFERS: Texas, Louisville, Florida, Cincinnati, Kansas, Pitt, Providence, Tennessee, Virginia Tech, Wichita State, Georgia Tech, Miami, Georgetown, Maryland, NC State

HIS RECRUITMENT: The Top 25 prospect has many viable options even though, outside of Kansas, he has yet to land other blueblood offers. Hall's father played at East Carolina, so there is a connection there and familiarity with other east coast schools like NC State and Wake Forest, where he's also taken unofficial visits.

OFFERS: NC State, Rutgers, LSU, Houston, Cincinnati, Texas A&M

HIS RECRUITMENT: Farrar has picked up a slew of new offers in the month of July that has included WKU, Texas A&M, LSU, and Rutgers, among others. He recently told TheKnightReport.com that he will take his recruiting process into the spring.
