Jedrick Wills Commits to Alabama

jed-wills-drummond

We’ve known this was coming for a a few months.  Today Jedrick Wills made it official by releasing this video on Twitter, choosing the Crimson Tide over Kentucky.

The offensive tackle from Lafayette High School is an UnderArmor All-American and considered a Top 50 player in the class of 2017.  Wills is the second Central Kentucky star in three years to choose Alabama over Kentucky, joining Damien Harris in Tuscaloosa.

    Nobody picks Alabama over Kentucky…this kid just had Kentucky on his list to be a good kid, Just like Damien Harris did

    Can’t say I blame him…. That is like a bball recruit deciding to go to Louisville over the Cayuts, without the whole hooker thing……

    I can’t be mad at him for doing what is best in his situation. He didn’t string the UK staff along like the other one mentioned, and I respect that.

      Totally agree, and I couldn’t have said it better.

    Wish him well! Great kid and you can’t blame him for picking Alabama. If we could have beaten Southern Miss, Georgia and Tenn. then things might be different! Until we take the next step, you cannot expect these guys to pick KY.

    It really stings to see UK working so hard to improve things and have the best talent going elsewhere, but I completely understand their decisions. Stoops has a little work left to do to prove that he’s got a contender built here in Lex. Hopefully in few more years we can give these guys an easier decision to make to stay home and play at UK.

    Echoing the others, I can’t blame him for going to ‘Bama. But I don’t think we can truly say that UK has turned the corner in building the football program until they win enough to keep highly talented kids like this in state. Perhaps if we had not taken the Joker detour after Brooks had retired we would already be there.

    It does kind of hurt to see that Alabama managed to keep their top basketball recruit in-state (with a new coach, no less), while we can’t do the same with a football recruit. Just don’t understand what these basketball kids are thinking. Go to the home school and get paid right away, or come to Kentucky and get paid a LOT more in a year. 😉
