The Kentucky Wildcats continue to build up their 2018 class.
The latest pledge comes from Tyler Bentley, who picked the Cats on Sunday, he announced on Twitter:
The three-star defensive tackle becomes the 10th commitment in 2018 for the Cats. He holds offers from Alabama, LSU, Florida and West Virginia among many others.
The Lakota West (OH) product is ESPN’s 39th-best defensive tackle and 19th-best prospect from Ohio. Scout.com ranks Bentley as the second-best defensive tackle from Ohio.
In January, Bentley said Kentucky was the program standing out most to him, and he likes how Mark Stoops is elevating this program.
"I would say Kentucky is sticking out right now, and I've visited there twice before,” said Bentley, via Scout.com. "I think the program is on the rise, and the new facilities are great, so they should be doing great things in the SEC East in the future," Bentley said. "I'm being recruited by Coach (Vince) Marrow."

Bentley joins four-star offensive lineman Darian Kinnard, four-star tight end Brenden Bates, four-star athlete Alex Reigelsperger and three-star center Quintin Wilson as Kentucky’s five pledges from the Buckeye state. That’s quite a haul from just one state if Stoops can keep their commitments.
