The Kentucky Wildcats will be getting an official visit from arguably the best prospect in the Class of 2016.

Five-star power forward Harry Giles is reportedly set to visit UK for Big Blue Madness on October 16, according to CBS Sports' Jon Rothstein:

This will be the second time Giles has attended Big Blue Madness after attending the event in 2013. As Ben Roberts notes, Giles may announce his commitment soon after his final official visit in October:

The bad news is Duke is getting his final visit, and the Blue Devils are the perceived favorite in his recruitment.

To this point, UK only has a commitment from four-star power forward Tai Wynyard in the 2016 class, and he's expected to join the team in January. Calipari has been working hard on the recruiting trail this summer, and getting Giles to visit for UK's biggest recruiting event is a huge move.
