Kentucky Wildcats Football National Signing Day: List of Current Commits and Ratings

New, 4 comments

5-star tackle Landon young leads the way for a stacked 2016 class for UK.

Jason Marcum

On Wednesday, the Kentucky Wildcats will look to finish off one of the best classes in program history when National Signing Day begins.

Under the watch of Mark Stoops, UK has secured three classes with an average 247 Sports Composite ranking of 31.3 overall. This year may end up being Stoops' best yet as the class enters NSD at No. 32 in the 247 Sports Composite ranking with the highest ranking coming from Rivals.com, which has UK with the No. 22 class.

A late commitment or two could help that ranking rise even more, but either way, this is another great haul for Stoops and co. that should help the Cats get back to the postseason sooner rather than later.

Be sure to check out the latest podcast to get a full rundown of the class and what to expect this week. Here's a recap of what UK's current 25-man class looks like as NSD inches closer.
