The Kentucky Wildcats have picked up another pledge in 2018.

The latest comes from Jamari Brown, who announced his commitment to the Cats on Thursday.

Brown, a three-star corner from Pompano Beach (FL), picked Kentucky over offers from Auburn, Louisville, Mississippi State, Oregon and South Carolina among others. He’s ranked 641st overall by 247 Sports.

With this pledge, Kentucky jumps up to No. 16 in the 247 composite class rankings for 2018. Once Rivals updates their team rankings, Kentucky should rank inside the top 15. If UK can just finish inside the top 20, that would be the highest-rated class of the Mark Stoops era as he continues to work magic in Lexington.

Brown joins fellow Florida corner Stanley Garner as recruits to pick Kentucky this week.
