Rated the No. 4 center nationally in the Class of 2013, Kingsley is one of Rick Pitino's top recruiting targets. Kingsley visited Louisville in early February and has strong interest in the Cardinals heading into the AAU season.
"Coach (Wyking) Jones and I talk a great deal and they're very interested in him," Gray said. "I think it would be a great opportunity for him to play for Coach Pitino. I don't know any kid in America that wouldn't want to play in a Final Four program."
During his visit to Louisville, Kingsley had an opportunity to get to know Dieng. Kingsley saw first hand how comfortable was the 6'11 Dieng was at UofL, which made a lasting impressing.
"I don't think there's any question that [Dieng's success] helps things," Gray said. "The main thing with foreign kids like Moses is they want to be comfortable. When Moses visited Louisville he saw how comfortable Gorgui was with all the other guys on the team, on campus and in the community.
"It was also important that Moses saw that Coach Pitino developed Gorgui. That was one of the things that Moses really liked. He sees Gorgui as a foreign kid from Africa just like himself and he sees how far Coach [Pitino] has come with Gorgui and I think he likes that. Moses wants to develop and become a great player."
"I think he likes Louisville, and kind of likes Florida and Arkansas," said Gray. "The AAU team he plays on, his teammate and friend Bobby Portis is committed to Arkansas. Those three standout if I had to pick three. Florida has had some great big men the past few years. He wants to play for someone that will push him to make him better and he feels Coach Donovan could do that."
Kingsley has visited Louisville, Arkansas and Mississippi State. Louisville assistant Wyking Jones has been heavily involved with Kingsley for a while, and Pitino went down to see him play during the season.
"Recruiting is all about developing relationships," Gray said. "Of all the coaches that have been to New Albany and talked to him I think Coach Jones and Coach Pitino have developed the best relationship with him."
Kingsley, who will play for the Arkansas Wings on the Nike EYBL circuit this spring, plans to narrow his options down this summer.
