As signing day approaches, be sure that coaches everywhere are just as worried about keeping what they have in the cupboard as making additions.

For the most part, Nebraska seems safe on the majority of its 21 pledges.

But it's worth keeping watch of four-star safety Marcus McWilson, the four-star safety from Cardinal Mooney.

It's clear that Kentucky coaches -- yes, where Vince Marrow ended up -- have been in the recruit's ear.

The Kentucky Scout site posted an article yesterday, in which McMullen said he was "mulling things over."

"As of right now, I am still committed to Nebraska. I always have been. I haven't visited anywhere else," McWilson told the site. "But I know coach (Vince) Marrow and I know coach (Mark) Stoops, and they've had a lot of good things to say about Kentucky. They want me to come down and take a look at what they have to offer before I make my final decision. I've been thinking lately that maybe I ended (the recruiting process) too early and that I need to at least take a look at (UK) before I sign with anybody. It's just a comfort thing for me right now."

Marrow, of course, was a graduate assistant at Nebraska. He jumped on Mike Stoops' staff as a full-time assistant in December. Marrow knows the McWilson family pretty well.

But McWilson committed to Nebraska back on Sept. 28 and has had plenty of time to feel comfortable with Bo Pelini and his staff. He's also friends and a high school teammate of linebacker Courtney Love, who is already on the campus in Lincoln.

And just a few before the recent Kentucky report, McWilson told BigRedReport.com he's still "100 percent committed to Nebraska."

So that's what's out there. We'll see what comes next.
