Madness Visitor List Breakdown

Kentucky originally had other prospects expected to visit this for Big Blue Madness but some had to back out of the visit for varying reasons. The final group still appears to be among the best group of visitors ever on campus at UK.

2010 Prospects

Kyrie Irving - 6-foot-1 Point Guard
One of Calipari's top targets this season is Irving. The New Jersey native is an instant impact prospect capable of scoring in bunches and making his teammates better. Irving is godson to assistant coach Rod Strickland.
List Includes: Kentucky, Duke, Texas A&M, Seton Hall and Georgia Tech.

Tobias Harris - 6-foot-8 Forward
Possibly the player whose stock lifted most during the summer was Harris. Harris is an offensive threat from all over the court with his shot and his ability to handle the ball with his big body. Harris is capable of playing either forward position and is a perfect fit for Calipari's dribble drive offense.
List Includes: Kentucky, Georgia Tech, Notre Dame, Syracuse, Connecticut, Tennessee, Louisville, Oklahoma, West Virginia and Maryland.

C.J. Leslie - 6-foot-9 Forward
Leslie may be the most athletic forward in the 2010 class. A former teammate of John Wall, he's already familiar with the Wildcats through his friend. Leslie is capable of scoring around the basket, but mostly he uses his quickness and athleticism to make plays above the rim.
List Includes:Kentucky North Carolina State are the schools mentioned most with Leslie.

2011 Prospects

Achraf Yacoubou - 6-foot-4 Wing
Yacoubou is an athletic shooting guard who makes his outside shots consistently. He is also an excellent defender who rebounds the ball well for his size. Yacoubou is a competitor who's played with and against top competition all through high school.

List Includes: Kentucky, Connecticut, Georgia Tech, Maryland, Saint Johns, Villanova, Wake Forest and Pittsburgh.

Michael Gilchrist - 6-foot-7 Small Forward
Gilchrist is widely believed to be the best player in all of high school basketball. He's able to get to the basket against virtually any defender and create scoring opportunities. Gilchrist can also play defense at an elite level.
List Includes:Kentucky and Villanova
