With signing day quickly approaching, it looks as if Kentucky may only sign a single prospect this fall, although there are still a couple other options.

With signing day quickly approaching, it looks as if Kentucky may only sign a single prospect this fall, although there are still a couple other options.

Stacey Poole will make his decision to attend Kentucky official next week when he signs his letter of intent. Poole will fill a role at shooting guard and on the wing as a scorer and finisher at the rim.

Will Poole be the only Wildcat signee?

Forward Terrence Jones could be an early signee. He's made visits to Kentucky, Washington and Oklahoma. Jones will also be visiting UCLA this weekend and will decide whether to visit Oregon or not afterward.

Either way, Jones is a prospect high on Kentucky's wish-list, due to his versatility. Jones hasn't said that he will sign early, but he may sign later if he can't come to a decision before the end of the signing period.

Tobias Harris is another prospect who could cast his lot with the Wildcats. Kentucky, Louisville, Syracuse and Tennessee have all received visits from Harris. Harris has plans to visit West Virginia, Maryland and Georgia Tech in the coming days before making his decision.

Another versatile forward, Harris is a scorer from both the inside and the outside. He's able to handle the ball on the perimeter as well as post up and score against larger players.

One of the mysterious recruitments is that of C.J. Leslie. Leslie has long been thought to be high on Kentucky, but it's been hard to find out which schools he's considering. Leslie may or may not make an early decision. The only known official visit that he has taken is to Kentucky.

Leslie is an athletic forward who runs the floor well and plays above the rim. Leslie can also shoot the the ball from mid-range.

Brandon Knight and Doron Lamb are also prospects who could sign early, but are likely to wait until the spring period. Knight is considering, Kentucky, Florida, Connecticut, Kansas and Miami. Lamb is considering Kentucky, Oklahoma, Kansas, Connecticut and Arizona.
