There are big recruiting weekends and then there are H-U-G-E recruiting weekends. The latter is what's going on at Kansas over the weekend. Potential McDonald's All-Americans Alexander Kaun and A.J. Price are town for the single largest recruiting weekend of the Bill Self Era.
The Seminoles had a huge recruiting class last year and Charles Thomas and Isaiah Swann certainly wouldn't be bad building blocks for this class. Florida State hosts two members of the Top 50 on campus this weekend.
A quick glance around the nation has Shaun Livingston, the No. 2 prospect in the land, down in Chapel Hill for the Syracuse football game. This is the first in a series of visits for Livingston and he'll be back in the Triangle in two weeks to visit with Duke. Joining him on the trip is the recently committed J.R. Smith.
