Kentucky in good shape for Georgia prospects

Kentucky hopes to add to their recruiting class this year by bringing in two quality players out of the state of Georgia. Both Imani Cross and Khalid Henderson are still very interested in the Wildcats.

Kentucky hopes to add to their recruiting class this year by bringing in two quality players out of the state of Georgia. Both Imani Cross and Khalid Henderson are still very interested in the Wildcats.

Imani Cross, a 6-foot-1, 220-pound running back from Gainesville, Ga. was a commitment to Tennessee for several months before re-opening his recruitment early in December. He has since considered Virginia, Nebraska and Vanderbilt. He has also been considering Kentucky.

At this point, he's down to Nebraska and Kentucky. A decision will be on the way on February first at the International Bowl. Hall rushed for 1798 yards and 24 touchdowns as a senior.

Khalid Henderson (Mableton, Ga.) is also a former Tennessee commit.

Henderson had an outstanding visit to Ole Miss over the weekend and named them his leader to Scout.com's Yancy Porter.

"Ole Miss is my number one school," he said to Porter. "I think that staff is going to do great things at Ole Miss and I would love to be a part of it," he continued.

While it sounds like a commitment could be forthcoming, Henderson is still listening to Kentucky. Joker Phillips, Rick Minter and Mike Cassity stopped by to see Henderson on Monday night.

"Just got down talking to Coach Phillips; (it) went great," Henderson said on Twitter Monday night.

He also indicated through Twitter that he would definitely be in Lexington for his official visit this coming weekend.

Adding Henderson to the Wildcat class could go a long way in solidifying an already solid recruiting class for Joker Phillips.
