Duke will play host to Patrick Patterson, the top remaining power forward in the country. Last week, the Blue Devils hosted their other top target Kyle Singler, the top small forward in the nation.

Iowa has a huge weekend on tap with Ohio State coming to town for a nationally televised game on the gridiron. 2007 commitments Dairese Gary, Jake Kelly and Jarryd Cole will be joined by 2008 pledges Matt Gatens and Baes Hamga. Also in town are key 2008 targets Anthony Crater, Dion Dixon, Lewis Jackson and Michael Dunigan.

After landing big man Mike Williams earlier in the week, the Kentucky Wildcats have an important weekend ahead as Chris Barnes and Darnell Gant are scheduled to visit Lexington.
