As the Kentucky Wildcats look for a strong finish in their 2014 football recruiting class, Jervontius “Bunkie” Stallings a 6-foot-3, 305 lb lineman from Spain Park in Birmingham, Ala., was one of the final targets for UK.
Needing an o-lineman to boost a thin unit that needs some depth heading into next year, Stallings was believed to be the final player that had a commitable-scholarship on the table other than Matt Elam,
Now, he’s a Wildcats after faxing his letter of intent to UK today.
Originally from South Pike (Miss.) High School before transferring to Spain Prk for his senior year, Stallings was believed to be favoring the homestate Bulldogs before being swayed to commit to UK in late January during an official visit to Lexington.
He’s currently unranked or a three-star prospect in every major recruiting service, but he does have scholarship offers from several BCS programs, including Mississippi State, Jacksonville State, Tennessee State and Western Kentucky.
He can play both center and guard, and will likely play primarily at whichever position has more opportunity for playing time going forward.
