The Kentucky Wildcats' 2016 recruiting class is already off to a tremendous start, and it looks even better now that Rivals has updated their rankings.
Two Cats are now in the Rivals 250, including Lafayette offensive tackle Landon Young now sitting at No. 149. It's a big boost for Young to go from an unranked three-star prospect to being one of the 150 best high school prospects.
Young has been committed to UK for almost two years, though he’s being pursued heavily by Ohio State. He was in Columbus over the weekend, and will likely visit again later this year.
Woodford County lineman Drake Jackson also got a boost by Rivals, He now sits at No. 244 overall in their rankings. This past week, Jackson earned an invitation to Nike’s The Opening Finals camp in Oregon in July.
Those two getting a boost has helped Kentucky climb into the No. 10 spot in Rivals' team rankings.
