Kentucky Wildcats Football: Report - Jason Hatcher Will Sign With Kentucky (UPDATED)

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.
