A few weeks ago, I went through and highlighted all of the players Pastner had offered since he was hired. Since then, the staff has offered over a dozen more players, continuing their active summer on the recruiting trail. Broken down by class, here are all the players who have recently received offers, as well as some updates on previous offers.
Andre Rafus (update)
Last week, Rafus released his top 15 schools: GT, NCSU, Miss St, TCU, Seton Hall, Kansas, USC, UCLA, Butler, UConn, Rutgers, Georgetown, ASU, Kentucky & St. Johns. With 15 schools still in the mix, it is too early to tell how involved the Jackets will be.

Alex O'Connell (update)
Last Friday, O'Connell took an unofficial visit to Atlanta and it sounds like the visit went very well. O'Connell plans to trim his list by the end of July and hopefully sign in the early signing period.

Gak, who plans on cutting his list soon, also holds offers from (and plans to visit) Duke, Miami, and Kansas. He runs the floor well and has a smooth jumper for someone his size.

Tucker holds offers from a bunch of blue blood schools, including Syracuse, Arizona, Villanova, and Indiana. The lethal shooter recently got an invite to USA basketball tryouts.

Having previously been recruited by Memphis and Georgetown, the GT staff might already have a strong relationship with this 7-footer.

Very recently offered by the Jackets, this top 10 player has offers from all the big schools. The Michigan native seems to have strong interest in midwest schools like MSU, Michigan, Indiana, and Illinois. Hopefully the staff can convince this sharpshooter to head south.
A source tells @Phenom_Hoops 2017 @nikemeanstreets guard Brian Bowen was offered by GA Tech. Plans to visit Michigan & MSU 'very soon.'— Julius Kim (@JKim97) June 7, 2016
According to Scout, Stanford and Virginia are the teams to beat for Barcello. While in Atlanta for EYBL, Barcello scored 30 points in four of the five games. He hopes to have a college decision made by October, but there's no word on when he plans to cut down his list of 25 offers.

Alvarado was offered by the previous staff, but it is unclear whether Pastner has extended an offer as well or if he is just showing interest at this point. Will Alvarado follow Kenny Anderson and Stephon Marbury as the next great GT point guard from NYC?
PG Jose Alvarado'17 said Butler, VCU, Seton Hall, Rutgers, GT, Miami & IU are the colleges showing a lot of interest pic.twitter.com/IMIJkVoUZK— Andrew Slater (@ASlater247) June 6, 2016
Jasey's recruitment has been kept fairly low-key with not much film out there and not much news on his recruitment. Hailing from Kansas, Jasey has plenty of attention from Big 12 schools, with offers from Oklahoma, Texas & Baylor just to name a few.

Khavon Moore (update)
Moore, 2018's top player in GA and a top 10 player nationally, visited campus this week for an unofficial visit. He's also taken recent visits to Florida & Auburn.

At 6'10" and 285 pounds, McCormack is an absolute monster down low. He is listed as a top 50 prospect by ESPN and Scout, with offers from Villanova, Miami, Maryland, and others.

Moss is a lethal shooter who can also throw down some crazy dunks. From Memphis, Pastner has had Moss on his radar far before he came to Georgia Tech.

Charles Smith IV
Pastner has clearly made it an emphasis to get involved with players early, with offers now out to five high school freshman. Smith IV was offered while on an unofficial visit to campus Wednesday.

Burns, a member of the GA Stars already had offers from mid-major schools Davidson, NC A&T, Winthrop, Tulane, & W. Carolina. In the past week, he's now picked up offers from uga and GT. At 6-8, Burns is often called a gentle giant and is also a talented musician.

Bacot, a skilled post player, also holds offers from JMU and VCU. From Richmond, he plays for Team Loaded (VA) on the AAU circuit.
