According to his official Twitter page, Arizona Western Junior College cornerback Nate Willis has committed to the University of Kentucky:



He held offers from West Virginia, Mississippi State, Ole Miss, and Arkansas among others. He was a 3-star prospect on ESPN, Rivals, and Scout. He is also rated as the #3 JuCO cornerback in the country by 247Sports.

With the recent departures of Marcus Caffey and Johnathan Reed, Willis not only gives UK some desperately-needed depth, but could come in and compete for a starting role this year. Willis can also play free safety, and his 4.4 40 time allows him to cover the field like an SEC defensive back.


Willis shared these comments in a previous interview with

Kentucky has been a favorite of mine since it was announced that coach (Mark) Stoops was hired up there. Being a Florida guy, I always liked watching Florida State play and the kind of defenses they had. I didn’t hear too much from them when they were at Florida State, though, so it kind of surprised me when I got the call that they wanted me to come to Kentucky. I was excited about it. A chance to play in the SEC is something I always dreamed about when I was younger. I was a big fan of the Florida Gators, but I liked watching all the teams in the SEC.
