Kentucky has worked hard to get underclassmen on campus for early visits. One such prospect is Amir Williams of Detroit Country Day (Mi.). KSR caught up with Williams about his visit to UK.

At 6-foot-9, 220 pounds, Amir Williams is one of the top rated center prospects in the 2011 class. Williams has offer from several schools, including Florida, Michigan, Michigan State, Ohio State, Wake Forest, Cincinnati and Arizona. However Kentucky has yet to present an offer. "A lot of schools are interested. I don't think (Kentucky has offered). I'm not sure if they have," said Williams.

So what kind of player is Williams?

"I'm basically an all-around post player. I have a lot of post moves. I'm strong on the inside with my post moves," said Williams. "I've got to work on my ball-handling," he said.

Williams has started off his junior year productively. "I'm doing good. I'm averaging a double double right now," he said. As a sophomore, Williams averaged eight points and four rebounds per game. This season Williams is averaging 14 points, 10 rebounds and five blocks per game.

Earlier this season Williams visited Kentucky and came away impressed. "It was a nice visit," said Williams. "It went well. The atmosphere that the players play in (stood out) the most," he said.

Even though he's taking a few visits this year he's still got a long way to go in his recruitment. "I'm probably going to commit late, during my senior year," said Williams.

Williams is a four-star prospect according to Scout.com and rated the number six center in the 2011 class.
