The Wildcats could be close to landing another prospect. Avery Williamson has plans to visit Kentucky in the near future and that could decide his fate.

After leading Milan High school to a 14-1 record and an appearance in the state championship game last season, Avery Williamson began to receive quite a bit of attention from Kentucky. Vanderbilt was also involved. Things have changed a lot, but Williamson is still very high on the Cats.

"He's going to (visit) Kentucky. He may visit Ole Miss and Vanderbilt," said Jeff Morris, head coach at Milan. "He's visiting Lexington at the end of the month for the Tennessee game," Morris continued.

Last season Williamson made 119 tackles in 15 games. This season through 12 games, he's got 109 tackles. He has also run the ball on offense for 386 yards and four touchdowns. "He's been excellent," said Morris. "He's been a one man wrecking crew on defense. He's been good at runing back and on kickoff returns," said Morris. "I don't know how he could play any better or do any more," Morris finished.

Milan is preparing for a third round game in the playoffs, where they currently stand at 12-0. So while his focus has been on this season and winning a state title, recruiting has been there the whole time.

"Kentucky is where he wants to go," said Morris. "UK is in the driver's seat. If something doesn't change (before the visit) there might be a commitment," Morris finished.
