The Wildcats just got the commitment of Benny Snell from Westerville, Ohio, courtesy of Vince Marrow as usual. Snell is 6‘0” tall and a solid 210 lbs. He had offers from Boston College, Cincinnati, Iowa, Bowling Green, and more.
Snell is ranked the #24 running back in the state of Ohio and is, as you might expect, a power runner. We can expect Kentucky to be looking for more running backs in the 2016 class, having signed only one in 2015.
Per Steve Jones, the Snell commitment lifts Kentucky to a #7 national ranking for 2016 recruiting. That won’t last, most likely, but it’s nice to be there now.
