The Kentucky Wildcats have secured a commitment from a prospect in the 2015 class in the form of Montrell Custis, a 4-star defensive back out of Georgia who picked UK over the Georgia Bulldogs, Auburn Tigers and Tennessee Volunteers.
STRENGTHS: Displays good top end speed and the ability to read and react well to run or pass. Makes nice breaks on the ball and demonstrates good ball skills when attacking. Possesses the ability to flip his hips and run with receivers with excellent change of direction. … AREAS OF IMPROVEMENT: Overall tackling skills require further development. Will benefit greatly by adding playing strength. … BOTTOM LINE: Custis is a quick and versatile athlete that will compete on either side of the football. Continued progress on his run defending and tackling skills should land him on the defensive side of the ball at the next level.
This is a huge get for a defensive backfield lacking depth, even if this is a 2015 commitment.
