Recruiting beginning to heat up for Cats

Kentucky expects to lose as many as seven players after this season to graduation and the NBA. With only one current signee for the 2010 class, Kentucky expects to bring in several strong prospects to fill out the class.

Kentucky expects to lose as many as seven players after this season to graduation and the NBA. With only one current signee for the 2010 class, Kentucky expects to bring in several strong prospects to fill out the class.

In the coming weeks, Brandon Knight will be making his decision known. Knight will announce his school of choice on March 31st at the McDonald's All-American Game this year. Knight is considering Kentucky, Florida, Syracuse and Kansas. Widely considered the top point guard in the class, Knight would be a strong candidate to replace John Wall as starting point guard next season.

Another point guard expecting to make a decision soon is Lake Clifton (Md.) senior Josh Selby. Selby has long been considering the Wildcats, but has yet to make his official visit. Maeshon Witherspoon, Selby's mother, told Scout.com's Evan Daniels that they were still considering visiting UK. "The only school that we haven't been to that is on our list is Kentucky. So that will probably be something we need to work out," she said. Selby is considering the Wildcats along with Connecticut, Arizona and Kansas. Selby will make his decision public on April 17th at the Jordan Classic.

Doron Lamb, a shooting guard prospect, is considering West Virginia, Kansas, Kentucky and Arizona. He's visited all those schools and like Selby, Lamb will make a public announcement at the Jordan Classic on April 17th. The Oak Hill Academy (Va.) prospect is the number three shooting guard in the country and is a four-star prospect according to Scout.com.

Flora MacDonald Academy (Nc.) forward Luke Cothron recently decommitted from North Carolina State. The 6-foot-8, 215 pound forward is considering Alabama, Kentucky, Tennessee and Indiana as possible destinations for college.

The Wildcats are also still involved with forwards Enes Kanter, C.J. Leslie and Terrence Jones. They are also continuing to recruit guard Terrence Ross, a former Maryland commit. It is unknown when these prospects will be making their college choices.
