Mark Stoops & Co. - US PRESSWIRE
Another 4-star defensive player has decommitted from a major football power and is very interested in UK.
From a Nebraska fan site:
Marcus McWilson @MMcWilson4 Officially decommitted from Nebraska. Not an emotional decision, doing what's best for me.
McWilson's tweets are private (Correction -- his account isn't private) so don't try to search this up and for God's sake, leave the kid alone and don't pester him with follow requests. ESPN (insider only) also has the news. Here is his Rivals.com page.
This is big news for Kentucky, because the site also refers to this tweet:
Marcus McWilson officially has decommitted from Nebraska per his Twitter and is now a Kentucky pledge.— Sean Callahan(@Sean_Callahan) January 27, 2013
I can't confirm that he's a Kentucky commitment, but he is talking about an official visit here, which gives some weight to that. Callahan is the Nebraska Rivals.com site publisher, and so you need to take this information with more than a grain of salt. But I have not confirmed it yet, nor seen it confirmed. I'll update this when/if that news comes in.
Mark Stoops seems to be flipping recruits right and left, and that is absolutely staggering to me given the position that UK currently occupies in the college football space. I must say it's exciting as it can be, and when football becomes exciting in the middle of basketball season for Kentucky, that's more than just unusual, it's downright gobsmacking.
