College commitments were popping off at a furious pace throughout the weekend. Big names like Cassius Winston, Curtis Jones, Romello White and De'Riante Jenkins gave verbal commitments to colleges. Here is a look at the weekend commitments.

(Note – Listed in Alphabetical order)

Mekhi Biffle – SG – Lawrence Central (IN) – Marian University
The Indianapolis shooting guard played with Eric Gordon on the travel circuit. He had Division I interest but decided to commit early to the hometown NAIA program. He should be able to excel at that level.

Parker Chitty – G – Columbus East (IN) – Eastern Kentucky
Chitty took an official visit to Eastern Kentucky this weekend and saw enough to commit to the school.  Chitty had taken an official visit to Bellarmine University as well.

Damien Jefferson – G/F – East Chicago Central (IN) – New Mexico
Jefferson was believed to be leaning towards New Mexico since the spring. He verbally committed to the Lobos while on his official visit there this weekend. Jefferson's father played at New Mexico and the Lobo coaching staff and roster has plenty of Indiana ties. Head coach Craig Neal is from Washington, Indiana while assistant coach Alan Huss was the coach that turned La Lumiere into a prep school power. Jefferson should be a good fit for New Mexico.

De'Riante Jenkins – SF – Oldsmar (FL) Christian – VCU
Jenkins is extremely long and athletic. He is best when using his physical tools to create turnovers, score in transition and be a force on the offensive glass. Those are areas that VCU has become known for under Shaka Smart and look to continue under new head coach Will Wade. Jenkins is a major pickup for VCU.

Curtis Jones – SG – Huntington Prep (WV) – Indiana 
Jones took an official visit to Indiana University a couple weeks ago and decided to pull the trigger on Saturday. Indiana was in the mix for a long time and it paid off. Jones is a shooter with deep range. He also has the ability to handle the ball. Jones will be trying to get his prep teammate Miles Bridges to attend Indiana as well.

Justice Kithcart – PG – Virginia Episcopal School (VA) – Pittsburgh 
Kitchcart had multiple official visits lined but decided to commit to Pittsburgh while on his first official visit. Kithcart was impressed by many things on the visit. “The great basketball history lineage of star point guards along with amazing facilities and the coaching staff,” Kithcart said of the factors that led to his commitment.

Myles Powell – SG – South Kent (CT) – Seton Hall
Seton Hall was able to keep Powell in state by securing his verbal commitment on Saturday. Powell attends prep school at South Kent but he is a native of New Jersey. Powell uses his body well off the dribble and has fantastic range as a shooter. Powell is an important pick up for the Pirates as he is regarded at a top 100 player in the country and from New Jersey.

Ben Scherer – PF – Blaine (MN) – Minnesota-Duluth
The Division II talent coming out of Minnesota right now is strong and deep. The Minnesota Heat Northwest post player added to that reputation as he verbally committed to Minnesota-Duluth over the weekend. Scherer, like many other small college players, had the ability to help many Division I programs but decided to go the Division II route.

Mitchell Smith – C – Van Buren (AR) – Missouri 
Smith became the first recruit in the 2016 class for Missouri over the weekend. The Arkansas native is long with feel for the game. He has always been an outstanding passer with good vision for a post player. His feet and fundamentals are strong points for Smith's game. He has a chance to develop into a major player at Missouri.

Romello White – PF – Wheeler (GA) – Georgia Tech
White was once committed to Tennessee but he opened his recruitment up in the spring. He became a sizzling hot recruit on the travel circuit while playing for Stackhouse Elite. White had offers from the likes of Kansas, Missouri, Georgia and South Carolina before selecting Georgia Tech. 

Cassius Winston – PG – University of Detroit-Jesuit (MI) – Michigan State 
Winston was believed to be deciding between Michigan and Michigan State for quite some time. His recruitment took a twist when Xavier Simpson suddenly committed to Michigan last week. That led to Winston cancelling his official visit to Michigan and set up his commitment to Michigan State. Winston is a fantastic scorer with the ability to knock down shots from the perimeter at a great rate or get to the basket off the dribble. He averaged more than 19 points per game for The Family on Nike's EYBL circuit.  He has shown the ability to set teammates up more and more throughout his high school career as well. It is a key piece for Michigan State. They are trying to lock down Michigan native Miles Bridges as well.
