One of Kentucky's under the radar athletes is Latrell Wilson. Wilson is a hard hitting safety with the potential to be a D1 player. Scout Kentucky Preps talked with Wilson about his game and his recruitment.

Southwestern Pulaski County had a 6-5 record last season behind several talented young players. One of those young players was safety Latrell Wilson, but Wilson had to pick up his play as the season progressed.

"I started off pretty slow. I improved a lot and played pretty well during the end of the season. There's room for me to get better and better," Wilson said.

Wilson describes himself as a player who goes ‘100 percent' all the time. And he's still working to get better at every opportunity.

"Right now I'm trying to get my strength back up. I want to get my speed up too. I run about a 4.5 in the forty, but I want to get down to a 4.4," he continued.

The 6-foot-2, 192-pounder has the physical ability and the work ethic for the next level. And several schools are taking notice.

"Right now Kentucky, Cincinnati, Ohio, Illinois and Western Kentucky are recruiting me," he said.

There are no offers on the table, but he's taken a few visits at this point.

"I have visited Western Kentucky and Ohio," said Wilson. "I'll be going to Illinois and Ohio again next week. I visited Kentucky on their Junior Day a couple weeks ago," he continued.

And what did Wilson experience in Lexington?

"They just wanted to show the players there that they were going to make you better as a player," he said. "And they showed us that they were a family. They want to show you that they care about you. I like that," he finished.
