Darius Miller is keeping some pretty fast company these days. Kentucky's top rising senior recently received visits from Kentucky's Billy Gillespie and Louisville's Rick Pitino.

Pitino stopped by Mason County High School yesterday, while Gillespie, the new Wildcat coach, made an appearance last week. College coaches are allowed to watch prospects at their high school during the spring evaluation period.

"They basically just came into the gym and watched the guys play," Mason County coach Chris O'Hearn said. "That's really about all they can do. They both said that they would be keeping touch with Darius."

O'Hearn also said that coaches from Wisconsin would be in today and Florida's Billy Donovan is scheduled to visit Mason County to show his interest in Miller. "Donovan's visit hasn't been confirmed, but he's coming in soon," O'Hearn said.

Miller, a 6-foot-6, 190-pounder, is rated the fifth-best small forward prospect in the nation by Scout.com. He averaged 21 points and 8 rebounds per game as a junior.

O'Hearn also said that both Louisville and Kentucky have extended scholarship offers to Miller.
