The highly-touted offensive lineman remains firmly committed to the Wildcats.

It doesn’t appear blue-chip offensive tackle prospect Kiyaunta Goodwin will be flipping his commitment from the Kentucky Wildcats.

The consensus top-75 prospect, who holds over 60 scholarship offers and is still receiving a heavy push from Alabama, Ohio State, Michigan and Michigan State, still appears locked in on becoming a Wildcat, despite the fact he will take visits from other programs.

The 4-star standout has over 60 scholarship offers and will visit Alabama, Ohio State, Michigan and Michigan State this fall as well as visiting UK.

Despite this, Goodwin seems committed to still becoming a Wildcat.

“They care about me. It’s more than just football,” Goodwin told On3 Sports. “That’s something that I always talk about. [Kentucky] isn’t saying, ‘you can’t go visit another school.’ They’re saying ‘we actually want you to go visit another school because if this isn’t the best place for you then we want you to go somewhere else.

“But Kentucky is the best place for me.”

Goodwin is among the highest-rated recruits ever to commit to Kentucky. Rivals ranks him as a 4-star recruit ranked 51st nationally overall, seventh among offensive tackles, and second in the state of Indiana, trailing only Caden Curry, who is considered an Ohio State lean.

The 6-foot-8 Goodwin from Charlestown (IN) is a rare Kentucky get from the Hoosier State that is mostly dominated by Ohio State, Notre Dame, Indiana and Purdue.
