It was a another big day in the land of recruiting for the Kentucky Wildcats. On the eve of national signing day, Ryan Timmons held an emotional press conference and pledged his allegiance to the Wildcats. The Franklin County star picked up and put on a blue UK hat that sat among other caps that represented Ohio State, Florida and Wisconsin among others.
Timmons’ commitment immediately boosted Kentucky’s recruiting class ranking on Rivals.com to the #30 class.
