4-star RB Michael Warren commits to Kentucky Wildcats

New, 8 comments

Kentucky scored a big-time Yahtzee with Michael Warren's pledge.

The Kentucky Wildcats have secured yet another big commitment in the Class of 2017.

Four-star running back Michael Warren announced his pledge to Kentucky via his Twitter page today:

Warren, who hails from Central Catholic in Ohio, is the No. 102 overall player in the Class in 2017 via 24/7 Sports composite, which also ranks him as the No. 3 prospect from the Buckeye state. IN 2014, Warren led Central to a state championship as while rushing for 2,246 yards and 28 scores.

The 5-10, 185-pound back recently attended Ohio State's Friday Night Lights camp and was drawing heavy interest from the home-state Buckeyes. It won't be easy keeping a talent like Warren committed to UK, especially if OSU does end up offering him.

As of now, Warren would be one of the highest-ranked commits for Mark Stoops since he became head coach in 2013. Warren now joins three-star QB Mac Jones and four-star receiver Russ Yeat in the Class of 2017, which is quickly shaping up to be another stellar class for Stoops and co.

Here's some highlights of Warren in action:
