It's finally here, college basketball gets off to its official start on Friday. It also marks the start of what is usually the single biggest recruiting weekend of the Fall.
While some schools will hold off until next weekend for their recruiting event, a ton of schools are getting things started this weekend with either Friday or Saturday events as somewhere in the neighborhood of 150 Rivals ranked players take visits this weekend.
Among the programs hosting ridiculous groups is Kentucky who will have the No. 1 player from both 2012, Shabazz Muhammad, and 2013, Andrew Harrison, included in its strong group.
Indiana will have its entire top-rated recruiting class on hand to host a group that is nearly 20 strong and will feature 2012 five-star Gary Harris.
Down in Memphis, the big draw is a performance from platinum selling rapper Rick Ross. But, the Tigers are also hosting some serious talent from 2012, 2013 and 2014, headlined by 2012 five-star Jarnell Stokes.
Not surprisingly, UConn has a massive event going on to celebrate its national championship. The best senior on hand will be high four-star Amile Jefferson but a strong group of underclassmen is led by 2014's No. 2 player Noah Vonleh.
