Kentucky Football: Belated Yahtzee - Marcus Walker Commits To Kentucky

Mark Zerof-USA TODAY Sports

Kentucky lands its second commitment for 2015, this time from the Florida talent pool.

I somehow missed this the other day, but 2015 defensive back Marcus Walker (3-star our tof Lake Wales, Florida) committed to Kentucky on Wednesday. Walker is the #15 safety in the nation for 2015, and had offers from Florida, Vanderbilt, USF, UCF, Duke Connecticut, UMass and Idaho. According to The Ledger, a Lakeland, Florida newspaper:

"Kentucky is where I want to be," the 6-foot-1, 185-pound junior said. "I felt real comfortable there after I talked with my family and my football coaches, and they said it was a good decision."

Walker also has a very high GPA (3.8). It seems also that former Lake Wales graduate Javess Blue helped Walker come to his decision.

It's nice to see UK off to such a fast start in 2015 recruiting. Stoops has to keep the Wildcats on a roll when it comes to getting new player in if he's ever to get this team enough talent to compete in the SEC. As we saw last season, one class of players won't do it, and two probably won't either. He must continue the momentum.

Walker joins Hampton, Georgia athlete Motrell Curtis, a 3-star who committed last November, as the second commitment in the 2015 class. Curtis had offers from Clemson and East Carolina and interest from Auburn, Georgia, South Carolina and Miami (FL) among others.
