LEXINGTON, Ky. — Kentucky still hasn’t given up on Lexington native Jedrick Wills.
The 4-star offensive tackle has been committed to Alabama since Nov. 15, but Wills and a few members of the Kentucky coaching staff were spotted having dinner together Thursday night in Lexington.
Stoops also made a visit to Lafayette High School on Thursday to see Wills.

Wills is the top-ranked player from Kentucky and is ranked the No. 7 offensive tackle in the nation, according to 247Sports.
National Signing Day is less than a week away and it’s clear Wills is still listening to Kentucky’s last-second pitch. He would become the Cats’ No. 1 prospect if he decided to flip and join their 2017 class.
The Wildcats are coming off their first bowl game since 2010. Wills told SEC Country after the Georgia game on Nov. 5 that he was starting to see the turnaround Stoops and his staff had talked about.
“They always mention that turnaround they’re waiting for and that they expected for all of us recruits to recognize and see,” Wills said. “It’s definitely in their favor that the season they’re always mentioning to us is happening.”
