This is potentially ground zero for the 2010 UK recruiting season as the UK staff visits Stacey Poole and Brandon Knight tonight. If one were to look at the likely scenario of UK recruits/commits in the 2010 class, these two figure into every discussion. Stacey Poole’s father played at Florida, but he has made clear that UK is his leader. Many recruiting people believe that as soon as UK makes the push, they can have Poole commit. Could tonight, or next week when he makes his official visit, be that time? Then there is Knight, one of the transcendent talents in the 2010 class, who the Cats desperately want. With Rumbaugh’s news that he wont be attending the Kansas Midnight Madness fresh, can UK make a big push on this in-home or a future official visit from Brandon?
These two kids are huge in the UK recruiting plans. They both either have hosted or will host the UK staff tonight. A big night for 2010.
