LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) — John Calipari has been keeping his eye on potential recruits at this week's Nike Peach Jam in South Carolina.

The Lexington Herald-Leader reports (http://bit.ly/MOVj3p) 2014 star Andrew Wiggins has laid claim to the title "best player in high school basketball" and the University of Kentucky coach has seen just about every minute.

But Calipari has also been paying special attention to 2013 wing James Young and 2014 point guard Tyus Jones. Young scored 34 points and made five of six three-point attempts in Saturday's morning session. He added 12 rebounds and seven assists.

Jones has cemented his place as the No. 1 point guard in the class of 2014 and had 24 points and nine assists in the Saturday morning session. Jones says he has an offer from UK.
