The Kentucky Wildcats are fresh off a very successful 2016 class, and their 2017 haul is already shaping up to be another good one.
The latest prospect to join UK's list of 2017 pledges is three-star defensive tackle Quinton Bohanna, according to Rivals.com's Justin Rowland.

Bohanna has since announced his commitment on Twitter:

A 6-4, 300-pounder out of Cordova (TN), Bohanna. got his scholarship offer from Mark Stoops and co. after attending UK's recent Junior Day. The Memphis Tigers the only other program that has offered him to this point, but bigger programs like Arkansas, Tennessee, Ole Miss and Mississippi State have shown interest.
247 Sports also now has Bohanna listed as a three-start commitment for the Cats, as well as the No. 45 DT in the class of 2017. He joins QB Mac Jones, DE James Hudson, WR Craig Yeast, RB Michael Warren, LB Bryant Koback and QB/WR/DB Walker Wood as 2017 commitments.
This is quickly shaping up to be a class that UK may have the majority of before the next football season opens.
Here are some highlights of Bohanna from his junior campaign.
