Kentucky is expecting a visit tomorrow from five-star forward Terrence Jones. Jones will be on campus to see the annual Blue-White game where the Wildcats will play an intrasquad scrimmage in front of thousands of fans in Rupp Arena.

Terrence Jones is clearly one of the top targets for the Wildcats. The 6-foot-8, 215 pound forward is one of the most skilled prospects in the class, capable of putting the ball on the floor and pass like a guard. Jones skill set also include his ability to score from the outside and on the inside. Jones is also a strong defender, with the size and athleticism to cover the three or the four.

Jones is considering Kentucky, Oregon, UCLA, Washington and Oklahoma. He desires to make his decision for the early signing period, but he may not be able to make all his visits.

Doron Lamb is another top quality prospect on Kentucky's board. Lamb visited Kentucky this past weekend and was given the red carpet treatment as the only visitor on campus. Lamb got a chance to see the Student-Only Practice last Friday and spent time with the staff learning about what his role would be in the Kentucky offense.

At 6-foot-4, 175 pounds, Lamb is one of the top shooters in the class. He's capable of filling it up from the outside, but he's also able to get to the basket and score off the bounce.

Lamb has visited Kentucky, Kansas and Oklahoma. Those are his co-leaders at this point, but he's still considering Connecticut, Arizona and St. John's. There's really no timetable for his decision at this point.

Rumors are also circulating that Ohio big man Adreian Payne will be making a decision by Friday. Payne has visited Kentucky, West Virginia, Arizona and Michigan State. Many people have claimed that Payne has cut his list to Kentucky and West Virginia, but there has been no verification of such a decision.

The five-star center is a great defender and rebounder who needs some refining in his offensive game to reach his potential. Payne would be a solid addition to the UK roster should he choose the Wildcats.
