Kansas staff to see one of nation's top-ranked players on Tuesday
Later today, the Kansas coaching staff will conduct an in-home visit with James Wiseman, the nation's No. 1-ranked player on some recruiting lists and a consensus Top 2 or 3 prospect in the Class of 2019 on pretty much all of the rankings.
The 7-foot center from Memphis who jumped from No. 3 to No. 2 in the recently updated Rivals.com rankings for the Class of 2019, released Monday, already is scheduled to officially visit Kansas for Late Night in the Phog.
Wiseman hosted the Memphis staff on Monday and will host Kentucky's staff on Wednesday. He wrapped up his official visit to Kentucky last weekend and also has scheduled upcoming visits to Vanderbilt (Oct. 14) and Florida State (Oct. 25).
Many analysts believe that the race for Wiseman is down to Kentucky and Memphis, but Wiseman's mother, Donzaleigh Artis, recently disputed that claim and relayed the fact that her son's recruitment was "wide open."
While the in-home visits and upcoming officials certainly will play an important role in the process, Wiseman's recruitment really is just getting started. His mother also recently indicated that she and her son planned to wait until the spring signing period to make a decision because that would give him the most information and allow him to make the best decision for his future.
'We’re going to do this at a late period, the latest period you can, so he can see both sides of it," Artis told 247 Sports' Evan Daniels in late August.
