Fifteen days away from signing
day, I have some good news and some bad news. First, the good news.
Dual-threat junior college quarterback Terry Wilson will take an official visit to Kentucky this weekend. Wilson moved up his trip to Lexington by canceling a visit to Indiana, the team that has recruited him the longest. The decision comes just days after Kentucky coaches were in the stands to watch his junior college bowl game. He teased the UK visit on Twitter.
Headed some where special dis weekend 👀👀👀👀

The good news is that Indiana is essentially out of the picture. The bad news is who replaced the Hoosiers. Steve Wiltfong reports Nebraska and Florida are now in play for Wilson.
Now with new head coaches, each one is trying to get off to a good start with an athletic quarterback. Of course Dan Mullen, the King of the JUCO, is now involved with Wilson. To Kentucky fans’ dismay, Wilson would be a great fit for a team without a consistent quarterback and would excel in Mullen’s system. A visit is not yet set in stone, but it’s on the horizon.
Wilson’s connections to Scott Frost and Nebraska really throw a wrench into his recruitment. A native of Omaha, Wilson initially committed to play for the Cornhuskers prior to a flip to Oregon. The man behind Wilson’s flip was Oregon offensive coordinator Scott Frost, who is now Nebraska’s head coach.
An optimistic person would be excited that Kentucky is the first school that gets a chance to wow Wilson. A pessimist sees the brand names lurking with an eleventh hour visit and dismisses Kentucky’s chances. How Wilson will make his final decision is probably somewhere in-between the two.
UPDATE: The visit to Lexington has been postponed for a trip to Nebraska.
Terry Wilson (@TerryTouchdown3) tells Cats Illustrated he will visit UK midweek next week and not this weekend. Things have really picked up for the UK target.
