Kentucky Wildcats Football Lands HUGE Commitment from Cory Johnson

 

UPDATE 1:25 PM EST 

We have a YAHTZEE:

 

And yes, our sources have confirmed it’s Cory Johnson, but he won’t be the last commitment this weekend…Stay tuned.

Mark Stoops may be on the verge of landing the biggest (figuratively and literally) defensive commitment since arriving on the campus of the University of Kentucky. Defensive tackle Cory Johnson is one of, if not the best DT prospect out there right now who’s uncommitted, and being a JUCo player means he’s a lock to get immediate playing time wherever he ends up. It just so happens he may have given his verbal pledge to the Kentucky Wildcats.

The 6-foot-3, 282-pound lineman already holds nine offers from PSU, Arizona State, Temple, Tennessee, Kentucky, Syracuse, Rutgers, N.C. State and Miami (Fla.). He initially committed to Temple out of high school, didn’t qualify and was forced to go the junior college route. Despite that long list of elite BCS offers it’s been believed that Johnson was down to Miami and Kentucky for awhile now. Johnson is rated by the 247Composite as one of the top 15 JUCO recruits in the 2014 class, as well as the second-best JUCO prospect in the state of Pennsylvania. If Johnson were to commit, the Cats would potentially have an All-SEC performer at three or four different spots on the defensive line:


Smith and Dupree off the edge while Johnson wreaks havoc on the interior is the kind of chaos you see in the d-lines at LSU, Alabama, Florida and Georgia.

Mark Stoops is certainly doing an outstanding job at UK, even if this impending commitment turns out to be false. But given his success as of late, don’t bet against him.
