Kentucky is off to a big start on the recruiting front. They are working hard to add more play makers to the roster. One such player is Stanley Williams.

Williams was previously committed to his home-state Georgia Bulldogs. However in April he decided to back off his pledge. Now he's considering several programs, including Kentucky.

"I'm talking most probably with Clemson, Kentucky, Arizona and West Virginia," said Williams. "We talk a lot on the phone. A lot of schools are starting to come on hard now that I've re-opened my recruitment."

It's obvious why schools are after him. He's a great all-purpose back.

"My vision is one of my strong suits. I just see the field well. I can go down the field and catch the ball. I play some at wide receiver, slot and running back. I also have speed and ability to read the defense," he continued.

His ability to be a threat all over the field is part of why Kentucky is after him so hard. And Williams believes Kentucky's new offense is going to be productive.

"Kentucky has a new thing going on. A lot of new coaches and great coaches are there," he said. "Coach Neal Brown is coming in from Texas Tech and bringing in the new spread. They should have a big year with the best offense they've ever had," Williams said.

Williams also likes Mark Stoops and is looking forward to making a trip to Lexington.

"Coach Stoops is a good guy. I like the way he coaches. I'm going to be looking at Kentucky football a lot this year.

"Actually I'm supposed to be visiting there soon. I've got to talk to the coaches and see what date to come up there," he said.

Williams isn't ready to make a decision, considering he just decommitted six weeks ago.

"I just opened things back up recently. I'm just trying to take my time and take things step-by-step. Who knows when the time will come? It could be after football or before football season. It could go up to signing day. There's a lot to look forward to in my recruitment."
