One of Kentucky’s major 2012 targets, top-tier power forward Perry Ellis of Wichita, KS, has scheduled in-home visits with the trio of home state schools that made his final list of four along with the Cats. Kansas, Kansas State and Wichita State each have visits set with Rivals’ 19th-ranked player, with the Jayhawks up first on Sep. 9th, the other Wildcats visiting on Sep. 12, and the Shockers meeting with Ellis on Sep. 13th.
As of yet, Kentucky does not have a date finalized for an in-home visit with Ellis, although UK is expected to get the final meeting. Coach Cal watched enough of Ellis’ games over the summer that I think they’re already pretty well acquainted, so going last shouldn’t prove to be an obstacle. Besides, I seem to remember Cal being pretty good at this recruiting thing. It’s Kentucky against the sunflower state for Ellis. The battle is on.
