Kentucky hosted another of their top prospects this past weekend when Georgia running back Toney Williams made his visit. Williams had been torn between Kentucky and Tennessee. Williams is now nearing his final decision.

After Tennessee's former coach Phil Fulmer stepped down, Toney Williams decided to rethink his decision to attend Tennessee. Kentucky was one program that showed Williams a lot of interest and Williams chose to check out the Wildcats. "I had a good time. It was fun," said Williams.

Williams was hosted by junior linebacker Micah Johnson and he got an opportunity to spend time with a few of the coaches. "I talked to the running backs coach (Larry Brinson) and coach Phillips and coach Brooks. I have a chacne to come in and play right away if I earn it," said Williams.

So did Kentucky make up ground on Tennessee for his services? "A little bit, but I still really don't know," said Williams.

Toney will be taking his final visit to Tennessee this weekend. After that, a decision could be forthcoming. "I am just going up to Knoxville and trying to have a good time when I go. I don't have expectations," said Williams. "I don't know (when I'll make my decision). Maybe sometime this week. Possibly once I get to Knoxville," said Williams.

The coach that Tennessee chose played a big part in whether Williams would have considered them any further. Williams approved of the hire of Lane Kiffin.

"I like him a lot. He's really honest and straight forward. He's the kind of coach that pushes you to work really hard," said Williams.
