Sunday Headlines: Amari Williams Visit Edition

Good morning BBN!

Things are starting to take shape for Mark Pope and the Kentucky Wildcats, as they have started to lock in on their top targets to fill out the coaching staff, as well as their top players to help fill out the roster.

A lot of attention has been paid to what 5-star recruit Liam McNeeley will do as the top uncommitted incoming freshman, but it is one transfer center that the fanbase should become familiar with.

Who is it? Drexel transfer, Amari Williams.

Williams arrived in Lexington for a visit on Saturday afternoon as he looks to make his choice between the Cats and Mississippi State in the near future.

It isn’t the best-kept secret, but with the way things are trending, it appears that Kentucky is in a great position to land the talented big man, which would give the Cats potentially the top defensive big man in the SEC.

A three-time CAA Defensive Player of the Year, Williams this past season for the Dragons averaged 12.2 PPG on 51.7% shooting from the field. He also added 7.8 rebounds. 1.9 assists and 1.8 blocks per game.

Adding Williams would be a great way to kick off the portal season for Pope. Let’s get it done.

Go Cats!
