KU, UConn Host Visitors

Two of the biggest names in the senior class are making final preparations for their decisions. Terrence Jones and C.J. Leslie crammed in final visits this weekend.

Just when you thought recruiting might be winding down, think again. C.J. Leslie, ranked No. 12 by Scout.com and Terrence Jones No. 20 will make final campus visits this weekend.

The Kansas Jayhawks may not be done just yet.

Bill Self's team saw an opportunity and pounced on it. Jones, one of the best power forwards in the nation, will announce his college choice next week. However, the Kansas Jayhawks will have the final chance to sway him. He visits Lawrence beginning Sunday.

Jones made official visits to Kentucky, Oklahoma, UCLA and Washington. Kansas had not been prominently linked with Jones until very recently. There's been an air of indecision with the state champion out of Portland (Ore.) Jefferson and during that time, Kansas quietly requested a visit.

Some of the teams on Jones' list have gotten players, experienced a dynamic off-season or in the case of Oregon, still doesn't have a head coach.

Meanwhile, Kansas has a pitch to make. With Josh Selby in the fold and Royce Woolridge having signed early, Self would surely like to round out the class with a big man the caliber of Jones.

On Friday, Connecticut had to balance the good (a visit from Leslie) with the bad (Cory Joseph's commitment to Texas).

Leslie made his official visits to Storrs and is strongly considering the Huskies, North Carolina State and Kentucky. Oregon, like Jones, had been mentioned throughout the year with Leslie but again, the lack of a leader for the program is likely to do them in.

Connecticut's class is headlined by Roscoe Smith and augmented by Top 100 wing Jeremy Lamb and center prospect Michael Bradley. Tyler Olander is on board as well and should prove to be a rotation player for Jim Calhoun.

Jones, Leslie, Luke Cothron and Terrence Ross are the lone Top 100 members who have not announced their college choices.
