Louisville RB Sets Visit Kentucky

The Wildcats have received some good news from Louisville, as one of the state's top running back prospects has scheduled an official visit for this weekend.

"I'm going to Kentucky this weekend for the LSU game," Corey Goodson told Inside Kentucky. "I'm gonna be looking at the coaches, players, and how they stack up academic wise."

Goodson is currently being sought after by Purdue and Louisville, in addition to the Wildcats. Florida State, Tennessee, and Miami (FL) round out his top choices.

"Coach Joker Phillips has been recruiting me," Goodson said. "He says they got a real good staff and from what I hear they got some good experience of gettin' kids to the next level."

Despite a slight ankle injury, Goodson finished first in Jefferson County in rushing this past season for the second straight year. Last fall as a junior, Goodson averaged an impressive 166-yards a contest, running for 1,843 yards and 25 touchdowns while helping Western to a final record of 8-2.

Asked whom had shown him the most "love" at this point, Goodson said: "Louisville, Kentucky and Purdue have really shown me the most right now,"

Louisville continues to be the only school to offer, but the Wildcats, whom are hoping to bring several kids in this weekend as possible preferred walk-on options, might be thinking that offer might not stand anymore.

"Kentucky hasn't talked to me about a scholarship," Goodson said. "They basically told me that they are looking at me as a running back or defensive back and that I needed to come this weekend and clear some things up."

Asked if this weekend could cause a verbal commitment; "No, not yet. It could, but I just wanna look at all my options right now."
