On the Trail: Kansas, Texas Tech, Stanford & UCLA prepare to host the elite

Kansas takes the center stage this weekend as it prepares to host some of the top prospects nationally as others bring in key targets in this week's On the Trail.

Just like that, we are now rolling into the month of October and with it, college basketball season is now upon us. Sure, there won’t be games for another 40 days or so, but midnight madness festivities are set to take place. Hence, Kansas is the place to be this weekend as the Jayhawks roll out the 32nd annual Late Night at the Phog. Some of the top prospects from the high school ranks will set foot onto the campus in Lawrence but there still is a full stable of on-campus visitors throughout the rest of the nation as the likes of Stanford, Georgia, Clemson, Alabama and Texas Tech look to host their top targets in the coming days.
