The Kentucky Wildcats and John Calipari are on the move again today trying to build on what's shaping up to be a great 2016 recruiting class.

According to Scout.com's Evan Daniels, Calipari will meet with five--star forward Harry Giles and five-star forward Edrice Adebayo's mother. Both of those guys are top-10 prospects in most recruiting services with Giles being No. 1 in most rankings:

It's going to be hard to get either prospect out of the state of North Carolina. The Duke Blue Devils are the favorites for Giles. The N.C. State Wolfpack and North Carolina Tar Heels are viewed as the teams to beat for Adebayo, but Calipari isn't letting up in his pursuit of the two talented forwards.

Giles, who is ranked as ESPN's No. 1-overall prospect, will visit Kentucky for Big Blue Madness in October before his Duke visit to end the month. He's also 24/7 Sports' top prospect.

As for Adebayo, he's ranked the No. 7-overall prospect on Rivals and No. 6 on ESPN. He hails from Northside High School in Pinetown (NC), and his 24/7 Crystal Ball has the Wolfpack as the favorites with the Tar Heels also receiving votes.
