On Campus Report

The second edition of our On Campus feature breaks down the big weekend in the Bluegrass, California's attempt to strike again and Texas A&M's impressive list of underclassmen.

Louisville to host two targets

Last weekend Louisville hosted their arch-rival Kentucky on the football field and 2014 recruits Jaquan Lyle and Quentin Snider off of it.

This weekend Louisville will focus on their 2013 recruiting class.

Rick Pitino and staff will host five-star point guard Anthony "Cat" Barber, as well as highly regarded post player Marcus Lee. Both are among their top targets at their positions and both will be on official visits.

Louisville has made it clear they want to add a point guard to their 2013 class that already consists of top 30 prospect Anton Gill and top 100 player Terry Rozier. Barber and Chris Jones, who will visit Louisville next weekend, are whom they've keyed on.

Barber, who visited Kansas last week and is expected to go to North Carolina State next weekend, will get the full court press from Pitino and staff. Louisville is also recruiting his AAU teammate Troy Williams.

Marcus Lee, Scout.com's No. 37 prospect, took a trip an unofficial visit to California last weekend. He also has official visits set up to Indiana, Duke and Kentucky.

Kentucky has a trio headed to Lexington

Although Kentucky is expected to have much bigger weekends ahead, they'll still host a solid trio of prospects for their game against Kent State.

To go with Kentucky commit Derek Willis, Kentucky will host 2013 four-star big man Dominic Woodson and his Huntington (W.V.) Prep teammate Montaque Gill Caesar, who is a top 25 prospect in the 2015 class.

Woodson's trip to Lexington (Ky.) will be an unofficial visit. He's also considering Baylor, Connecticut, Memphis, North Carolina State, Oklahoma, Rhode Island, Tennessee, Texas A&M and Tulsa.

Gill Caesar, a native of Canada, transferred to Huntington Prep this year. His high school coach – Rob Fulford – told Scout.com recently that he's giving Andrew Wiggins all he can handle in practice.

Cal looking for more commitments?

Last weekend Mike Montgomery and his staff and California hosted Jabari Bird. By Wednesday he was on the board as a Cal commitment.

This weekend Cal will host Bird's AAU teammate Ivan Rabb, plus 2013 prospects Darin Johnson and Jordan Matthews. Both Johnson and Matthews hold commitable scholarship offers from California.

Can Cal pull off another post-visit commit?

If so there 2013 class would be off to a more than solid start. Bird, a five-star prospect, was a major pull, but adding a top 100 prospect like Johnson or a shooter like Matthews would boost its lineup.

Texas A&M targets underclassmen

Texas A&M will host Florida in football and the basketball team will have a handful of highly regarded recruits on campus to check it out.

Justise Winslow, a five-star recruit out of Texas, is arguably the most important prospect headed to campus. He's an elite wing prospect that will be an immediate contributor when he gets to college. Khadeem Lattin is the other ranked 2014 recruit headed to campus.

But they aren't the only talented prospects headed to campus.

2015 top five recruit Mickey Mitchell, of Plano (Tex.) Prestonwood Christian, will be at Texas A&M this weekend as well. Mitchell, a combo forward, is one of the premier sophomores in the country and a relentless rebounder.

2015 teammates Elijah Thomas and Austin Grandstaff are expected to be on campus as well. Texas A&M will also have DeAndre Davis, JT Trauber, DJ Hogg and Ben Lammers on unofficial visits.

Arizona hosting Jefferson

Arizona has a big weekend, as the Wildcats will try to address a key need at small forward in hosting five-star 2013 prospect Rondae Jefferson on an official visit.

Jefferson unofficially visited the Wildcats in early August and the UA is the team to beat in this recruitment.

It will be interesting to see if Arizona can wrap up Jefferson while he's on campus.
