FB RECRUITING: OL Yancey Reynolds III

Cats close to adding another junior college All-American...

Yancey Reynolds III, a 6-foot-5, 330-pound offensive lineman from Georgia Military, will make an official visit to Lexington this weekend, and is expected to give UK his commitment.

"If everything goes well up there, I think Yancey has made up his mind that Kentucky is the place for him," said Georgia Military coach Bert Williams. "I think the fact that Jermaine (Harris) is up there really helps, and the kind of job coach (Chris) Lancaster and coach (Guy) Morriss did on him is a big factor. They've recruited him extremely hard and made him feel like he's a big-time player for them.

"I know coach Morriss expects him to be able to come in and play right away. Every junior college kid wants to hear that."

Harris, a NJCAA All-American free safety from Georgia Military, committed to UK earlier this winter.

Williams describes Reynolds (370 bench, 5.4 forty) as a power blocker with tremendous strength and footwork: "Once he gets his hands on you, it's over; you're controlled. He's just a terrific run blocker, and he's adept at pass blocking, too."

The Dublin, Ga., native projects as a guard at Kentucky, but played tackle at Georgia Military.

"He's a pleasant kid to be around and has a great work ethic," Williams said. "Kentucky's going to love this kid."
