Pair of 2010 UK Recruits Visit Other Schools

Brandon Knight and Tobias Harris, a pair of 2010 recruits that Kentucky is pursuing, took visits to other schools this weekend.

Knight, the top overall player in the 2010 class according to Rivals, took unofficial visits to Connecticut and Yale this weekend.

“It was fine. He hasn’t made up his mind or anything. I live in Connecticut for the summer and he came to visit and he went to visit a couple of schools,” said Dave Beckerman, Knight’s coach at Ft Lauderdale (FL) Pine Crest.

Knight has picked up offers from and outstanding list that includes Connecticut, Duke, Florida, Florida State, Georgia Tech, Kentucky, Miami and Syracuse.

"He hasn’t made up his mind,” Beckerman said. “He’s a very bright kid. He was here on a visit and he wanted to see different things and he’s visiting different schools on an unofficial basis so that he can get a feel for it.”

Beckerman said there’s no timetable for a decision.

“He’s going to let the process play out,” he said. “That’s what he would prefer to do and hopefully he’ll make the right decision.”

Harris, a 6-8 forward that is #29 on the Rivals150 list for 2010, visited Georgia Tech this weekend.

“Tobias visited Georgia Tech and he had a great visit,” his father, Torrel, said. “He was very impressed with the school and its basketball program.”

Harris is being recruited by Tennessee, Connecticut, West Virginia, Syracuse, Notre Dame, Maryland, Georgia Tech, Rutgers, St. John's, Virginia, Kentucky and Louisville.

“At the end of the summer we will cut the list to five schools and by the end of September we will have a college decision,” Torrel said.

“When we pick our five, everybody’s going to know.”
