Mark Stoops and the Kentucky coaching staff were expecting to go three-for-three with four-star commitments on Tuesday. They started out a perfect two-for-two, but they’re going to have to wait for that third and final player to make his college decision.
According to Josh Edwards at The Cats Pause, four-star defensive back Joel Williams has postponed his announcement.

After hauling in two, elite four-star offensive lineman – RJ Adams and Jeremy Flax – the Wildcats were on the brink of ending the day with one of its best recruiting stretches in recent memory. Unfortunately (or maybe not?), Williams is going to take some more time to think about it.
On Monday morning, Williams tweeted out that he was looking for someone to help him with commitment videos and he even posted a picture back in late November indicating that he would announce Dec. 17. Obviously, that is no longer the case. Something has changed in the last 24 hours and there is no current indication as to when Williams will make his final choice.
The Crystal Ball over at 247Sports gives the Wildcats a 63 percent chance to land the Baton Rouge native. Williams is rated as the 13th best athlete in the country and the 12th overall player in the state of Lousiana. He’s been a highly sought after recruit, pulling in offers from SEC programs such as Alabama, Georgia, Florida, and Auburn.
Almost another Yahtzee!, but we can wait a bit longer.
