Basketball Recruiting: Visits Time!

KSR gives a rundown of 2010 prospects expected to be on campus during September and also prospects who will be receiving visits from the basketball staff.

In-Home Visit Calendar

Explosive combo guard Josh Selby has officially set up his in-home visit with the Wildcats. On September 15th the Wildcats will be in Baltimore to visit with him. Selby is also being recruited by Kansas, Oregon, Connecticut, Florida State, Texas, Baylor and Miami.

The following day, the Wildcat staff will be in New Jersey visiting with Scout's number two point guard, and assistant coach Rod Strickland's godson, Kyrie Irving. Irving is involved with Indiana, Duke, Seton Hall, Connecticut, Georgia Tech and Texas A&M.

The Wildcats' top shooting guard prospect Doron Lamb will receive a visit from the staff on September 10th. Lamb listing Kansas, Oklahoma, Connecticut and Arizona along with Kentucky.

Scout's top point guard, Brandon Knight will receive a visit from John Calipari on September 14th. Knight has at times thought to be a Wildcat lean, but he's considering Florida, Miami, Duke, Kansas and Connecticut.

The most surprising news thus far is the in-home visit with Roscoe Smith. Smith is one of the top wings in the class, but the traction between he and Kentucky didn't seem to be there early in the summer. Smith will also have in-homes with Duke, UCLA, Memphis, Kansas, Florida, Maryland, Connecticut and Georgetown.

Kentucky will also visit with forward Terrence Jones in Portland on September 22nd. Kansas, Indiana, Oklahoma, Oregon, Florida, Oregon State, North Carolina and Arizona are all involved with Jones.

Official Visits

Kentucky was originally to receive an official visit from Stacey Poole this past weekend, but Poole has rescheduled his visit to Kentucky on September 19th, which is also the day of the Louisville football game at Commonwealth Stadium.

Joining Stacey Poole on this visit will be fellow Floridian Brandon Knight who'll only be five days removed from his in-home visit with the Wildcats. Knight is thought to be Kentucky's top point guard target.

Kyrie Irving will make his official visit to Kentucky on September 26th. Irving appears to be trying to make his commitment early in his senior year with several visits already in place.

Final Note
Marquis Teague is considering taking an additional visit to Kentucky before making his decision, however most believe he is very close to committing to the Louisville Cardinals.
