The Kentucky Wildcats have finally scored a commitment in the backfield.
On Sunday, UK landed a pledge from running back Christopher Rodriguez, who announced his decision on Twitter:
Rodriguez, a 6-0, 200-pound back, made the call right as UK began Media Day on Sunday. The Ola High School product hails from Georgia and holds offers from Ole Miss, Mississippi State, Middle Tennessee State, Troy, Arkansas State, Colorado State and Marshall among others.
None of the major recruiting services have an evaluation on Rodriguez yet, but seeing his offer sheet should mean he’ll at least be a low three-star prospect.
UK now has 16 commitments in the Class of 2016, but Rodriguez is the first running back to join it. Check out some highlights of the newest Cat in action:
