Nyang, Coleman Set For UK Visit

The two biggest recruits slated to visit the University of Kentucky this weekend are from the same high school.

Wheeler High School is home to the Wildcats two biggest visitors this weekend in Mam Nyang and Boyd Coleman. Both are excited about their upcoming visit to Kentucky.

"I'm real excited about the trip," Coleman said. " I like Kentucky a lot, they are one of my top schools right now and I am just looking forward to seeing it."

"I'm just going to go up there and check it out. I want to see the relationship between the coaches and the players."

Coleman will be accompanied by his teammate, four-star defensive end Mam Nyang.

"We've had this visit set for a while now, so I've been ready for it," Nyang said. "I like the fact they are recruitin' us all. It would be nice to have one of my boys come up there with me."

Nyang has had Kentucky on his short list for some time because of loyalty. The Wildcats have stuck with Nyang, even though he'll probably not qualify.

"Everbody's backed off because of my qualifying score," Nyang, whom will take the test again in January said. "I will get my score up and I am gonna qualify. I'm gonna choose one of the schools who have stuck with me when I do. I'm not worried."

Coleman is Kentucky's biggest want at cornerback. With a legitament 4.3 speed and a host of upper echelon schools looking at him, he would be a key find in a year where cornerbacks were a priority across the country.

"Schools like my speed and quickness," Coleman said. "They say I can play receiver or defensive back. I like both spots."

For now, it's onto their visit, which features a visit to Rupp Arena for the Kansas-Kentucky game.

"Oh man," Coleman said. "That's gonna be wild. I'm real excited about that. I've heard about Rupp Arena and I hear it's gonna be crazy for that game."

Coleman confessed to being a college basketball fan, in which Nyang agreed.

"Everyone's been talkin' about it," Nyang said. "On T.V. its all talkin' 'bout Kansas-Kentucky. It's gonna be off the hook."
