The Kentucky Wildcats have already picked up two commitments this weekend, and a third came late Sunday night via the Class of 2017.
It came when three-star running back Bryant Koback announced his commitment to UK via his Twitter page:
To make things more clear yes I did just COMMIT TO UK ⚪️ #bbn ALL DAY— Bryant Koback (@koback27) January 18, 2016
A 5-11 back from Springfield (OH), Koback was targeted by recruiting coordinator Vince Marrow, keeping his Ohio pipeline strong going into the 2017 class. 247Sports ranks Koback as the No. 45 running back in the class of 2017 while ESPN and Scout have yet to rank him.
Koback becomes UK's eighth commitment in the class of 2017. Among his offers were Toledo and Indiana. This past season as a junior for the Springfield, Koback rushed for 2,015 yards and 31 touchdowns on 194 rushes.
As it stands, Koback joins a 2017 class that also consists of running back Michael Warren, defensive lineman DeMarco Artis, defensive end James Hudson, quarterback Mac Jones, wide receiver Craig Yeast II, tight end Charles Reeves, and quarterback/athlete Walker Wood.
Here are his highlights from that season:
