On Campus: Weekend of September 21

A bad slate of college football games has led to a light week of visitors on the basketball side. Still some key trips will be taking place.

Florida hosts key visitor

The Florida Gators are getting a chance to impress one of their most important targets this weekend. Five-star small forward Justise Winslow will be making the trip to Gainesville. Also joining him will be committed four-star point guard Chris Chiozza, making it a big weekend for the Gators.

Florida already has a very talented class on the perimeter with Chiozza and shooting guard Brandone Francis, and now they are trying to really load up by adding Winslow into the mix.

Winslow is one of the more unique talents in the class. He is the ultimate competitor on the floor who does a little bit of everything to help his team win. Winslow is an elite defender, a very good passer, a great rebounder for his position, and he just knows how to score despite not being a great shooter.

The Gators already have a good start, but they are going for an absolutely great class, and one of the big pieces to the puzzle is adding a guy like Winslow who would shore up things on the wing.

Notre Dame to host important prospects

Mike Brey and his staff at Notre Dame will have a pair of important visitors coming to town. Class of 2014 prospect Devin Robinson and class of 2015 shooter Matt Ryan both will be making their way to campus.

Robinson has stayed very quiet about his recruitment in the media, but the versatile forward was rumored to really like the Irish coming out of July. Someone who can play all over in Notre Dame's system, the Irish are going to work very hard this weekend to see what they can get done with him.

Ryan has long been considered a lean to the Irish. The native of New York could be on commitment watch this weekend as the Irish are getting him for an unofficial, and they are the leader at this time.

Pac 12 teams host key visitors

While this is a light weekend overall, on the West Coast some key visits will be taking place. Four-star Trey Kell is visiting Arizona, Kameron Chatman heads to USC, Thomas Welsh goes to UCLA, and Michael Humphrey is headed to Stanford.

Chatman continues his visit tour after seeing Michigan and Oregon, and now will check in on the Trojans who are riding high after the recent commitment of Jordan McLaughlin. Chatman is one of the most talented wings in the country, and his visit process is ongoing. USC is hoping to make up ground with a big visit.

Arizona could stand to add a high level shooter to the roster, and there might not be anyone better in the West at making shots than Kell who is a four-star prospect.

With bigs the supply is always thin and Stanford has a chance to make a big impression on Humphrey. Humphrey is a high level student, and the Cardinal have made him a priority following his rapid rise during the July evaluation period. Coming off of a visit to Cal, Welsh will see UCLA as Steve Alford and his staff try to shore up the future of their interior. Both Welsh and Humphrey are considering some of the same schools, so it will be interesting to track their progress.

Other key visits

Indiana will play host to three-star point guard Lourawls Nairn. Tum-Tum is said to be leaning to Michigan State following his visit there last weekend, but the Hoosiers will get the final chance to impress the speed merchant from Sunrise Christian.

It is likely to be an unofficial visit, but JaQuan Lyle is planning to make it to Connecticut this weekend for a game. The five-star point guard will check out the Huskies who are in desperate need of a point guard. Also visiting UConn will be junior college standout Sam Cassell.

Creighton will have a top priority in forward Josh Cunningham visiting. With their move to the Big East, Creighton has been trying to really get in with some higher level talent, and Cunningham would be a huge start there.

Butler and Head Coach Brandon Miller have a top priority in wing Adonys Henriquez on campus. The former Miami commitment has been visited multiple times by Miller this fall, and now the Bulldogs are hoping to lock this one down.

The biggest human in the class of 2014 is Elbert Robinson, and LSU is hosting him this weekend. The Tigers are thought to be in a pretty solid position with Robinson at this point.
