The Kentucky Wildcats football program entered the 2013 season with a recruiting class ranked in the top-10 of most services, but after a 2-10 campaign, many wondered how many decommits would come in the offseason.
Already the Cats have lost offensive tackler Derrick Kelley, who was one of the first commitments in the class, but is now considering the likes of LSU and Florida State, teams who have competed in a BCS championship game recently.
Hard to blame him for liking one of those school more, but Kelley isn’t the only prospect now receiving interest from major BCS programs, and junior college defensive tackle Cory Johnson is certainly getting that. Regarded by many as one of, if not the best DT prospect in the JUCO ranks, keeping him committed to UK and getting him on campus for spring football is pivotal to the success of next year’s team.
It appears as though they will do such, as Josh Edwards of the Catspause is reporting that Johnson will sign his official letter-of-intent paperwork on Wednesday is expected to participate in spring football.
