"Kentucky offered me," he said. "I was actually there [on a visit]."
The trip allowed Solomon to see Lexington and the campus for the first time and the Wildcats made a strong impression on him.
"It was amazing. The program is really improving and has a lot of great facilities. It's a very beautiful campus and it's a very good school as well."
The visit also gave him an opportunity to get to know offensive line coach John Schlarman.
"He's a very good guy. He treats his players well and is a real family guy. He is a great coach on top of that as well."
The Wildcats also offered his bookend tackle at Chatard, Matt McCann.
