Kentucky’s 2015 football recruiting class has picked up they’re second commitment and they haven’t even finished with the 2014 class yet. Marcus Walker gave the coaching staff his verbal on Wednesday. Marcus is a 6′ 0″ 175lb safety from Lake Whales, Florida. He is ranked by rivals as a 5.7 3 Star Safety and is currently sitting at #15 at his position. This is a great addition but not exactly a surprise considering that he had been saying for months that Kentucky was at the top of his list along with Vanderbilt. It was also known that he wanted to make a decision early in the recruiting process. Marcus says he is solid with Kentucky but that he may still take visits to other schools. Marcus had offers from such schools as Connecticut, Duke Florida, South Florida, UCF and others.
With Walker’s commitment, it is hopeful that it will convince his teammate, Luke Hiers to go ahead and pull the trigger for Kentucky as well. Luke, like Marcus, has said on multiple occasions that Kentucky was his favorite and that he too wanted to commit early. Hiers is rated by rivals as a 5.8 4 star offensive linemen (center) coming in at #2 at the center position. Some have said that this is a two horse race between Kentucky and Miami but Luke has had his reservations about Miami due to they’re off field issues. Along with Kentucky, Luke had offers from, Miami, Mississippi State and South Florida.
