The Kentucky Wildcats have scored a huge commitment from James Hearns, a Tallahassee linebacker and former Florida commit. Hearns is the 7th-best middle linebacker prospect and the 200th best player overall in the 2013 class according to 247Sports.
Hearns said on Thursday that his scholarship offer had been pulled because of his academics - something that Hearns was aware was a possibility and was one of the reasons he was looking around at other programs. The 6-foot-3, 230-pound middle linebacker said a Florida coach called him on Thursday to inform him. He is the 279th-rated player on ESPN.
There are reports that Marcus McWilson also committed, but he took to twitter to say that was false.
