McFarland Spurns Friars to Experience Marquette Madness

It's being reported on Marquettehoops.com that Chas McFarland, the 7-foot recruit whose stock is rising like a meteor, has changed his plans a bit. He had been scheduled to visit Providence for their Madness celebration, and was scheduled to visit Marquette in two weeks. Well, stuff happens, apparently.

McFarland has decided to attend Marquette Madness and has scheduled his official Marquette visit this weekend. There has been no indication as to why he has changed his plans, but one can only assume that Marquette must be near the top of Chas' list at this point, as Madness is a premier weekend to showcase a school's program.

McFarland attends Worcester Academy (MA) and is originally from Lovington, Illinois. He is a former AAU teammate of Marquette freshman, Dominic James.

It is unclear as to whether McFarland will be joined on his trip to Milwaukee by his prep school teammate, Ben Eaves. McFarland and Eaves have made simultaneous unofficial visits in the past, and had planned on making officials to Providence this weekend. Marquette is also recruiting the athletic Eaves, who is a 6'8" forward from England.
