Kentucky is now 2-for-2 in Tuesday commitments from Florida.
After Davoan Hawkins committed earlier in the morning, the Cats later scored a pledge from Marvin Alexander, according to 247 Sports’ Ryan Bartow.
Alexander, a 6-3, 175-pound receiver out of Hollywood (FL), picked the Cats while holding offers from UCF, UAB, Syracuse and East Carolina among others.
"I feel it's the best situation for me," Alexander told 247. "I have a couple of my teammates going there. I just feel it's the right place for me. I'm going to bring a physical, competitive wide receiver to Kentucky."
Alexander now plays at Chaminade-Madonna Prep after transferring from Flanagan High School. He hasn’t received a recruiting evaluation or ranking at any of the major services, but Alexander’s early offer sheet suggests he’ll get one very soon.
He joins defensive end Davoan Hawkins and quarterback Jarren Williams in Kentucky’s three-man 2018 class for now. Expect it to grow now that 2017 is wrapped up and Kentucky’s Junior Day having just completed on Jan. 28.
