Eric Bledsoe is basically Lance Stephenson and John Wall is Xavier Henry. Both have been recruited by the same schools.

Eric Bledsoe, the No. 3 point guard in the Class of 2009, will take a step closer to making his college decision this weekend when he visits John Calipari’s old and new programs.

The 6-foot, 160-pound Bledsoe, out of Birmingham (AL) Parker, will take an official visit to Memphis on Thursday and to Kentucky over the weekend, according to sources.

Both programs are in dire need of a point guard. Kentucky has a front line of DeMarcus Cousins and Daniel Orton, and could also return shooting guard Jodie Meeks and big man Patrick Patterson. Yet Calipari’s club needs a floor general to propel it into the upper echelon of the college ranks.

The Wildcats are hoping Raleigh (N.C.) Word of God point guard John Wall picks them, and Bledsoe may be a backup plan in case he ends up at Duke or Baylor or somewhere else. Wall is due to cut his list sometime this week.

Meantime, despite the losses of Cousins (to Kentucky) and Xavier Henry (to Kansas) Josh Pastner’s Memphis club will feature Shawn Taggart, JUCO star Will Coleman and 6-10 forward Angel Garcia in the frontcourt with Wesley Witherspoon, Roburt Sallie and Doneal Mack on the wings, making them a formidable outfit.


Funny how Zag thinks Baylor is still in the mix. Maybe he knows something we don't.

Drew taught Bledsoe how to ride a bike when he was 6 years old....of course Baylor's in the mix!

I believe in the article that he was saying Wall could go to Baylor. Bledsoe is down to Kentucky and Memphis.
