Report: Jason Hatcher Will Sign With Kentucky

UPDATE from Ben Roberts of NextCats:

Folks, this is huge. This is vast. Not only do we get a top flight defensive end, but we get him from the heart of Louisville Cardinaldom.

This is big freaking news.

Go, 'Cats!

According to Rivals, Trinity's Jason Hatcher, who was committed to USC but recently reneged, will not commit to the Trojans tomorrow:

Obviously, Kentucky fans and the coaching staff are hoping to sway Hatcher to Kentucky. If that were to happen, it would quite probably move Kentucky's football recruiting class into the top 25 overall, which would be an astonishing accomplishment for Stoops & Co. considering the very short time they have had to recruit and Kentucky's history of being unable to bring in recruits of this quality.

Both Kentucky and Louisville are being considered by Hatcher, and he has offers from Alabama, Arkansas, Auburn, Florida, Michigan, Notre Dame, USC, and many others. Getting a player with this many big offers at this stage would be incredible for the Wildcats. He's supposed to decide tomorrow at 3 PM.

Ryan Timmons is a Wildcat

Ryan Timmons, a much-desired wide receiver prospect from Franklin County, committed this afternoon to the University of Kentucky.

Timmons is ranked a three star by Rivals and Scout, four star by ESPN and 24/7. He is the seventh player ranked at the four star level that Mark Stoops has landed since he came to Kentucky after the season. This is especially significant since Stoops hasn't really had time to recruit very much, since a number of prospects had already committed before he came. Not only that, it normally takes years of relationship development to get the better players.

This is yet another very exiting development for Kentucky football, and another sign (as if one was really needed) that Mark Stoops was the right hire for UK. It's also clear that Kentucky's new commitment to football has been noticed by prospects, and that is giving the recruiting process an extra boost along with the buzz around the program created by Mark Stoops & Co.

Timmons chose Kentucky over Arkansas, Cincinnati, Illinois, Florida, Ohio St. and Purdue, among others.

UPDATE: John Clay has much more on Timmon's commitment.
