Three 2013 Minnesota basketball targets will make an official visit to campus this Friday.

As head coach Tubby Smith continues to seek out talent in future recruiting classes, the Minnesota Golden Gophers basketball team will officially welcome three 2013 recruits on visits to campus on Friday, as reported by the Star Tribune.

Cedric Hankerson, a 6'4 guard from Miami, will join Nigel Hayes, a rangy 6'7 swingman from Toledo, Ohio, and Gavin Schilling of Chicago on Friday's official visit. Schilling and Hayes are each currently rated as three-star prospects, according to Scout.com, while Hankerson is the more unheralded of the lot with a two-star grade.

The 6'9 Schilling, who made headlines this summer for transferring to high-school superpower Findlay Prep, is the most coveted of the three, and is only expected to rise as a prospect as his level of competition increases. Schilling runs the floor ideally for his size and frame and looks more than ready to contribute right away at the power forward position when he's finally eligible.
