The Kentucky Wildcats have received the letter of intent from Tallahassee, FL cornerback Kendall Randolph, who picked UK over the Oklahoma Sooners.
Randolph committed to Mark Stoops just two weeks ago after it appeared his brother, Bob Stoops and Oklahoma were the favorite for his services
A four-star cornerback in the class of 2014, Randolph held offers from the likes of Florida, Arizona, Arkansas, Tennessee, Miami, Michigan State and UCLA and other BCS programs.
Randolph cited his relationship with Stoops dating back to his days in Tallahassee as the biggest reason why he committed to UK:
“With Kentucky, Coach Stoops was like my best friend when he was at Florida State. With him going [to Kentucky], nothing has changed with us. He’s just at a different program,” Randolph said. “I’ve developed a good relationship with Coach [Derrick] Ansley and Coach [Bradley Dale Peveto]. That’s really what it comes down to.”
Here is a brief portion of his ESPN recruiting profile:
A savvy and instinctive player as a CB/safety hybrid who is likely a best fit on the perimeter. Plays well with his eyes and reacts quickly and aggressively to the run or pass with good angles. Plays the ball in the air and is involved in pass breakups, but also has gotten a lot of gifts. Has good instincts, anticipation and potential burst to arrive with the ball and possibly play the ball.
