The Kentucky Wildcats continue to solidify their 2017 recruiting class before we even hit the summer.
More often than not under Mark Stoops, UK has had most of their recruiting class wrapped up before the first fall football game. That's quickly becoming the case this year as Stoops just secured another commitment in the Class of 2017.
This time, it's Georgia athlete Jamin Davis, who just pledged to the Cats via his Twitter page.
A 6-3, 208-pound prospect out of Long County high School in Ludowici (GA), Davis also holds scholarship offers from Georgia State and Tulane. Louisville and Duke were also interested in him, though UK became the first Power 5 program to offer him, which came on March 5th.
Davis becomes the 9th player to join UK's 2017 class, which is ranked inside the top 10 of 247 Sports' team rankings. He does not have an evaluation done on him yet, so there are no star ratings for him in the major recruiting services. Davis played wide receiver and linebacker this past season, and the belief is UK wants him as a backer.
New UK commit Jamin Davis earned UK offer Saturday when visiting for junior day. I'm told the Cats are recruiting him as outside linebacker.— Ben Roberts (@NextCats) March 7, 2016
UK defensive line coach Jimmy Brumbaugh was the lead recruiter for Davis, so that only adds to the likelihood he ends up on the defensive side of the ball in college.
Here are some of Davis' junior season highlights:
