Decisions next for several key targets

859868
Over the weekend - and slightly prior to the weekend in one case - a talented foursome of seniors finished with the official visit process. Alex Poythress, Kaleb Tarczewski, Willie Cauley and Andrew White are now on the clock.
Although he didn't give a timetable or respond with any favorites, Poythress confirmed Sunday night that he is through with the visit process after a weekend trip to Memphis.
The athletic 6-foot-8 forward from Clarksville (Tenn.) Northeast has also visited Vanderbilt, Kentucky and Florida.
Obviously things can change, but Vandy and UK continue to be the two programs getting the most run. While not set in stone, it would be a mild surprise if a decision is not made within the next 7-10 days.
Down to just Kansas and Arizona, seven-footer Kaleb Tarczewski completed a trip to Tucson over the weekend.
The five-star product of Southborough (Mass.) St. Mark's, has now been on each campus multiple times and should be near making a decision.
Coming out of the summer and earlier this fall, there seemed to be a lot of behind-the-scenes chatter regarding where Tarczewski may or may not be leaning.
One day it was Kansas, the next it was Arizona. Over the past month or so, everybody involved with his recruitment has pretty much gone into information lockdown so there's been more speculation - currently even parts Arizona and Kansas in terms of where he'll go - than tangible info.
A decision is most likely to come in the next week to week and a half. Both Bill Self and Sean Miller have made their pitch and the losing party here certainly won't be for lack of effort.
Willie Cauley wasn't even supposed to visit Kansas State until this coming weekend. But, the Olathe (Kan.) Northwest product had a couple of days off from school last week and asked the staff if he could move up his visit.
Cauley had previously visited Kentucky, Florida and Alabama so he's now armed with the information to make his decision.
His standout season on the football field is nearing an end and so is his recruitment. There's a chance that the decision could be done by week's end, but the most common timeline is that he'll pick within the next two weeks.
All of the reports from Cauley's visits have been positive but it certainly has the look of a battle of Wildcats as we head down the stretch.
Finally, four-star wing Andrew White was in Austin, Texas, over the weekend. The 6-foot-6 senior from Virginia had also visited Kansas, West Virginia and Louisville officially.
White has also made several unofficial visits throughout the process with the most recent going to N.C. State, which has also gained a lot of steam in his recruitment according to many sources.
Sunday night, White hinted that a fifth official visit wouldn't be out of the realm of possibility. But, he's not ready to commit to taking one just yet.
As of now, look for White to decide during the early signing period. However, it would not be a surprise if he were to wait until a bit after signing day to make his choice.
