Five-star power forward Matthew Hurt is one of the top players in the country. He has a busy few days coming up, featuring some elite head coaches.

Hurt, a Minnesota native, is the No. 4 player in the class of 2019. 247Sports ranks him the No. 2 power forward in the country.

He has been drawing interest from virtually all of the elite programs in the country. Mike Krzyzewski visited him last April, and he made trips to both Duke and North Carolina this fall.

Those two Tobacco Road powers are still very involved. However, they'll both have some more stiff competition.

Matthew Hurt is getting visits from four of college basketball's biggest coaches today and tomorrow.

Krzyzewski and Roy Williams are in to see Hurt today. According to 247's Evan Daniels, tomorrow he'll host Kansas's Bill Self and Kentucky's John Calipari.

Right now, Hurt's recruitment is all over the place. Those four coaches are among the top programs in the country, so it wouldn't be too shocking for any of them winding up with him.

As far as early predictions go, Kansas is the early clubhouse leader. Half of the early predictions at 247's crystal ball have him as a Jayhawk.

His home-state Minnesota Golden Gophers could also be a contender. Richard Pitino's program has 30-percent of those predictions.

Landing Matthew Hurt would obviously be a coup for Minnesota. The Golphers haven't landed a five-star player since Kris Humphries in 2003. Humphries, also an in-state product, was on track to go to Duke, but wound up switching his commitment late. He was an all-conference player as a freshman, but Minnesota had a disappointing season as a team, and he left after just one year.
