Visit Update: OL Does Not Make Trip

Michael Gates, an offensive line prospect out of Tyrone, GA was scheduled to be on the campus of Kentucky this weekend. The visit to Blue Grass did not take place. Why was Mr. Gates not in Big Blue country this weekend?

"I canceled the visit to Kentucky earlier in the week," said Michael Gates.

Why did he cancel the trip?

"I have been trying to narrow things down and I didn't really think Kentucky was in the final two."

Who has Mr. Gates got it narrowed down to?

"Mississippi State and Ole Miss are my final two."

What put those two ahead of Kentucky?

"The main thing was early playing time. Kentucky was talking to me about taking a gray shirt and I didn't really like that. I have the opportunity to come in and contribute early at both Ole Miss and Mississippi State. That was the biggest reason."

Gates will visit Starkville (MSU) next weekend and then Oxford (Ole Miss) on the 21st of January.

A decision could come shortly after he returns from Ole Miss.
