Five-star forward Isaiah Jackson is scheduling visits to some of his top college choices in the weeks ahead. Fortunately for Kentucky Wildcats fans, that includes their campus too.

According to Jake Weingarten of Stockrisers, Jackson is in Lexington for a visit with John Calipari and the team today. Going into the visit though, he does not yet have a scholarship offer from the Wildcats.

247Sports rates Jackson as the No. 21 overall prospect in the country. He is the No. 3 power forward in the nation, and the No. 1 prospect from the state of Michigan.

It was reported earlier this week that Kentucky was one of several teams in on Jackson. Michigan State, Duke, Kansas, Arizona, Alabama, Maryland, Illinois and Oregon were also named.

However, 247Sports' crystal ball predictions currently have Michigan State as the leader for the in-state recruit, despite his father's assertions that he does not have a favorite.

Isaiah Jackson hasn't trimmed down his list just yet, but has made numerous visits over the past two years.

He's taken unofficial visits to Michigan State, Michigan, Marquette, and Creighton, and has an official visit scheduled at Alabama in September.

Will Jackson emerge from his visit to Kentucky with an offer? We could find out in the next few days.
