Jamar "Boogie" Watson commits to Kentucky football

Another day, another YAHTZEE!

The Kentucky Wildcats have scored yet another football commitment, this one coming in the Class of 2016.

Jamar 'Boogie' Watson announced on Twitter Monday night that he was committing to the Cats:

A 6-2, 220-pound outside linebacker out of Bishop McNamara (MD), Watson visited UK in April and again in July, when he posted this video of himself in a Wildcat jersey:

Watson holds offers from Miami (OH), Boston College, Rutgers, Virginia, and Old Dominion. ESPN and 24/7 Sports don't have an evaluation on him yet. Rivals gave Watson a two-star rating and ranked him the 35th-best prospect from the state of Maryland. Given how well UK has done on the recruiting trail recently, expect Watson to get good reviews once more recruiting services are able to evaluate him.

You also know Watson is a good player because of the fact his commitment puts Kentucky at 22 commitments for 2016. There are some quality players still on the board with UK high on their list, so anyone the Cats take a commitment from at this point must have some serious upside and potential to become impact players.

Here are some highlights of Watson in action:
