Kentucky will be receiving official visits from two of their top prospects this weekend when point guard Brandon Knight and swingman Stacey Poole visit Lexington.

Both prospects will fill voids that the Wildcats will likely have after this season.

All-everything point guard John Wall is expected to only be in Lexington for one season, which leaves only Eric Bledsoe at the point. Knight would be able to come in and get quality minutes at the point early on as well as play some two guard for the Wildcats.

Kentucky will also go into the season with only one true shooting guard on the roster in Darnell Dodson. Stacey Poole would be able to come in right away and provide competition at the shooting guard spot as well as spot duty at the three behind Darius Miller and along side Jon Hood.

Knight lists Kentucky along with Kansas, Connecticut, Miami and Duke as his suitors. While a decision could wind up taking quite a bit of time for Knight, most expect him to make an early decision in order to sign during the November signing period.

Stacey Poole told KSR and several other media outlets that he plans to make his decision next week. Poole is considering Clemson and South Carolina along with Kentucky. He hasn't visited South Carolina or Clemson officially and has no plans to.

Scout on Knight: One of the nation's finest prospects. Won the Gatorade National POY as a junior. Can flat out score and is tracking as a big, scoring point man. Shoots it on the move, from different areas and with accuracy and confidence. Excellent student as well. Has a winner's resume and will be ready to step in and lead a big time time program the moment he arrives on campus. Athletic build, diverse offense and upside.

Poole on himself: "I'm still the guy that goes out and competes and give it my all," said Poole. "I just go at people. I've been working on my shot. Everything is loking good. I'm just working on being consistent, " Poole said.
