Mark Stoops and Kentucky are still going after Alabama commit Jedrick Wills.
The Lafayette High School star ranks No. 17 overall in the class of 2017, according to Rivals.com.
Wills said the Kentucky staff told him they will recruit him until the last day:
“They’ve told me to give them a chance and that they’re going to recruit me to the last day,” Wills told the Herald-Leader in late September. “All the way up until signing day, no matter what happens.”
Wills was spotted at UK’s practice facility Saturday by the Herald-Leader’s Jennifer Smith and other reporters. He was accompanied by Lafayette quarterback and longtime UK commitment Walker Wood. Several uncommitted prospects from the 2017 class are also visiting Lexington this weekend.
Stoops says he will never give up on a player he wants, even if the player is committed to another school:
Mark Stoops on recruiting committed players: "We’re never gonna stop. We’re going to make it very difficult for somebody to tell us no.”
