The Kentucky Wildcats have suffered a decommitment from one of their top 2018 commits.

It comes from Shocky Jacques-Louis, who announced his decision on Sunday:

The Class of 2018 athlete picked UK back in April. The four-star prospect hails from Dunbar High School in Fort Myers (FL), and he’s recently picked up a host of offers from major universities. That includes Michigan State, Tennessee, South Carolina, Louisville, Georgia, Michigan, North Carolina and Minnesota among many others.

That’s why it’s not a real surprise to see Shocky decommit. He probably wants to enjoy being recruited by all of these new schools while also considering UK. In this same class, UK lost a commitment from Jarren WIlliams as he wanted to give other big-name schools a chance to recruit him. They did, and Williams still ended up recommitting to UK.

Hopefully, that same scenario will play out with Shocky on down the line.
