The Kentucky Wildcats have picked up a football commitment in the 2016 class.
Findlay (Ohio) punter Grant McKinniss got his first major offer on Sunday from UK, and today, he committed to the Wildcats.

McKinniss was participating in a kicking camp UK was hosting along with One on One Kicking. The UK coaches loved what they saw from him enough to go ahead and offer him a scholarship.
