An Illinois fan who lives in Lexington tried to recruit Kahlil Whitney while he was on his official visit at Kentucky.
“Big Reece” who goes by @mayntainperfect on Twitter posted a video saying that he yelled “I-L-L-I-N-I” to Whitney and his family while they were riding a golf cart on Kentucky’s campus.
“I just seen Kahlil Whitney and his family turn on a golf cart, and they went straight up this street here,” “Big Reece” said on the video. “As soon as I seen him, I hollered his name out…I just hollered out I-L-L-I-N-I.”

Adam Zagoria confirmed the encounter with Whitney’s father.
Kelly Whitney said the visit was going “great” and they got a chance to watch Kentucky’s practice for its upcoming Bahamas trip Aug. 6-13.
Whitney recently cut his list to eight schools: Kentucky, Illinois, Louisville, Oregon, Miami, Florida State, Georgetown and SMU.
I give this fan a lot of credit for his effort to recruit Whitney, but no chance that he goes to Illinois
