The Kentucky Wildcats have scored a major commitment in the Class of 2018.
It came Sunday night when four-star offensive lineman Darian Kinnard announced his pledge via Twitter:
Kinnard is ranked as the 161st-best prospect in the 2018 class by 247 Sports in addition to being the 17th-best offensive tackle and sixth-ranked prospect from Ohio. Scout.com also gives him a four-star rating.
The 6-7, 336-pound Kinnard holds offers from Penn State, Pitt, UCLA, West Virginia, Maryland, Minnesota and Missouri among others. He’s also being recruited by Ohio State, though the Buckeyes haven’t offered yet.
Kinnard joins defensive end Davoan Hawkins, wide receiver Shocky Jacques-Louis, wide receiver Marvin Alexander, defensive end Alex Reigelsperger, tight end Brenden Bates, and wide receiver Cadarius Gaskin as UK commits in 2018. That’s good for 247’s 23rd-best recruiting class.
