There are also a few prospects who plan to make visits to Lexington in the near future.

In-home Visits

New York forward Tobias Harris has scheduled his in-home visit with Kentucky September 9th. Harris is currently considering Kentucky along with about 8 other programs. Many believe that Harris does see Kentucky among his top three choices.

Ohio forward Adreian Payne has an in-home visit scheduled for September the 12th with the Wildcats. At one point, it was thought that Payne was down to Kentucky and West Virginia, but that's not the case. Payne is still considering a hand-full of schools.

Brandon Knight is planning a September 19th visit with Calipari. The sunshine state point guard has been thought to be a Kentucky lean at times this summer. Knight is considering Kentucky, Florida, Miami, Kansas and Connecticut.

Kentucky will have an in-home visit with Josh Selby set up soon as well. Currently there is no hard date for the visit. Selby is considering Kentucky, Kansas, Connecticut, Baylor, Oregon and several others.

Kentucky will have an in-home visit with Terrence Jones of Oregon in September as well. The date for that visit isn't readily available at the moment. Jones is considering Kentucky, North Carolina, UCLA, Washington, Oklahoma, Florida and several others.

Another likely in-home visit will be with forward C.J. Leslie. Leslie thought to be a Kentucky lean as well, with former teammate John Wall in his ear. Leslie also had planned an unofficial visit to Kentucky for this month, because of previous obligations wasn't able to make that planned visit.

Other visits dates of note:
Kyrie Irving: September 25th - Official Visit
Stacey Poole September 5th - Official Visit

Kentucky also received an unofficial visit from 2011 point guard Marquis Teague. Teague had long been thought to be a Louisville lean, but UK made up quite a bit of ground during the visit. Teague does still plan to visit Louisville again before deciding. He'll make his decision prior to this year's basketball season. Teague is considering Kentucky, Louisville and Indiana.
