Visit Update: Coleman Enjoys UK Trip

If football doesn't work out for Boyd Coleman, perhaps poker would be a good avenue in the future. To say the young cornerback from Marietta (Ga.) is hard to read, would be an understatement.

"It was cool, it was real cool," Boyd Coleman said of his visit to Kentucky. "I got to see the indoor practice facility, the academic center and the stadium. It's a real nice stadium. I liked it a lot."

The star cornerback from Wheeler High School was supposed to visit with Mam Nyang, but went to Kentucky, instead, with star running back Richie Rich.

When asked about Mam Nyang's no-show in this weekend's festivities; "I don't know," Boyd Coleman said. "I was sorta disappointed he didn't come. I think he's committed to Southern Miss now."

The Wildcats saved the best for last - a classic matchup between two top 10 teams - Kansas and Kentucky.

"The basketball game was real fun, and probably the highlight of the trip," Coleman stated. "I'd never been to a college basketball game as big as that before. It was real cool, you could tell the (UK) people love their school."

"I was very comfortable there," Coleman concluded. "I could see myself there, but I think we (Rich) both could say that about Minnesota too. I'm still just unsure about what I'm gonna do."

Asked if Richie Rich's decision would have an impact on his decision.

"Yeah, it would," Coleman explained about his friendship with Richie. "I think it will have an impact on where I decide."

Asked if he had a decision soon; "Maybe. Probably not, but maybe."

Coleman's next scheduled visit is the 14th when he heads for Ole Miss. He's also scheduled for NC State on the 21rst; "I don't know if I'll take those. I think I know where I wanna go, but I just wanna make sure in the next couple days."
