Wide receiver T.V. Williams, the diminutive but speedy wide receiver from McKinney, Texas, announced Tuesday night his commitment to Kentucky.

Nebraska was believed by many to be in Williams' final two, though the receiver made his decision sitting behind a table that included the hats of five schools. He also considered Oregon State, Iowa and Houston.

Williams is only 5-feet-9, 148 pounds. But his speed and elusiveness made him a three-star recruit and enticing prospect for Husker offensive coordinator Tim Beck's offense.

The recruit visited Lincoln in mid-June for Big Red Weekend and was wowed by the facilities. He also liked the Huskers' fast-paced offense.

But it was the hat of Kentucky, which is putting together a Top 5 class nationally, that he put on his head when it came time to decide.

While the Huskers would have taken the addition, Nebraska does already have some intriguing receiving prospects among its 11 commits.

Demornay Pierson-El is a slippery receiver who committed over Big Red Weekend. And speedy Larenzo Stewart, who committed on Friday night, is also a potential slot receiver in Nebraska's offense.

The next recruiting announcement to mark on the calendar? Looks like Monday. Millard West's Harrison Phillips told the Journal Star in a text that's when he plans to pick between six schools: Nebraska, Stanford, UCLA, Kansas State, Duke and Northern Illinois.
