After a busy schedule of hosting in-home visits with the coaching staffs from Kentucky, North Carolina State, North Carolina, Duke and Kansas, 5-star PF Julius Randle is taking his first official campus visit this weekend, CBSSports.com's Jeff Borzello reports.

Randle is in Lexington as UK head coach John Calipari is hosting the prized recruit and a Wildcat Basketball reunion.

Everyone from Anthony Davis, John Wall and DeMarcus Cousins to members of the 1996 championship team (like Tony Delk, Wayne Turner, Derek Anderson, and Antoine Walker) were in town for the inaugural UK Alumni Charity Basketball Game at Rupp Arena.

The 6'9", 225 pound front court stud from Dallas, Texas was able to experience the success and to feel the sense of family within the Wildcat program.

Borzello indicated that Randle only has one other official visit planned: Florida in early October.

While Randle will have the red carpet rolled out wherever he goes, it will be hard to match the star-power that Calipari was able to assemble for this important occasion.
