Calipari pursuing three elite point guards

Kentucky's John Calipari appear to be putting major effort into three of the nations top 2011 point guards.

The Kentucky Wildcats are involved with three of the top point guards in the class of 2010, and appear intent upon landing at least one of the players.

Last weekend Kyrie Irving visited Duke, and several reported that a Duke commitment was imminent. The guard now plans to visit Lexington or Big Blue Madness in just over two weeks and now reports he is wide open. The elite guard has strong ties to the Kentucky staff, as UK assistant Rod Strickland is his uncle and god father.

The Wildcats recently entertained Brandon Knight, who was in Lexington the same weekend as Stacey Poole. Knight is expected to hold off and make a sprin decision, which may benefit the Wildcats as Calipari tends to do very well with recruits he has all winter to focus on.

Calipari also was entertained by Josh Selby and his mother during September. Selby has not yet schedyled any official visits, but appears to also be headed for a spring decision.

All three players could be worthy replacements for John Wall, if he is one and done as expected.
