Recruiting: Kentucky beats Nebraska for T.V. Williams
Sam McKewon Omaha World-Herald

If Nebraska fans were to compile a wish list of non-conference teams to play, Kentucky just might make the top 5 these days.

The Wildcats’ top ten recruiting added Tuesday night McKinney (Texas) three-star wide receiver T.V. Williams, who committed to UK at a ceremony inside his high school that was delayed for a half-hour, then took nearly an hour to unfold. The 5-foot-8, 150-pounder had the Huskers in his top group after a lengthy visit in June, including a trip to Big Red Weekend.

But Williams visited Kentucky twice, too, attending the Wildcats’ spring game. He lauded the “crazy fans.” Plus, NU had just added a similar-style slot athlete in Klein (Texas) scatback Larenzo Stewart.

The decision continues a run of Kentucky roster victories over the Huskers. First Marcus McWilson flipped his commit from NU to UK for the 2013 class. Then running back Braylon Heard transferred to the Wildcats. In the spring, another top Nebraska wide receiver target, Thaddeus Snodgrass, committed to Kentucky, as well.

Of course, there’s a season to play in 2013. Nebraska’s likely to have a significant victory advantage there.
