Jared Casey, a four-star linebacker from Ballard High School in Louisville, is making his college choice today, and it seems like Kentucky could be in a good position.

Casey originally committed to the Oregon Ducks over Kentucky, Louisville, Cincinnati, and several other schools, but decommitted on Nov. 27 following an in-home visit with the Kentucky coaching staff.

Landing Casey would be a big time recruiting victory for Kentucky following yesterday’s news about Wandale Robinson, and is also a big win for UK’s recruiting efforts in the city of Louisville with the Wildcats already holding three commitments from players in the city of Louisville.

Casey is expected to tweet out his announcement at 5 p.m. today. You can follow him on Twitter @jared_casey01.
