4-star WR Kalil Branham commits to Kentucky

A major pickup for the Cats’ offense.


Kentucky just scored a major commitment on offense.

On Monday, four-star wide receiver Kalil Branham announced his pledge to the Wildcats.

Branham was originally committed to the Michigan Wolverines. But after he visited unofficially for the Blue/White game, Branham re-opened his recruitment, and Kentucky has been the trendy pick ever since. He also holds offers from the Baylor Bears, Louisville Cardinals and Indiana Hoosiers among others.

The 6-1, 205-pound receiver from Columbus (OH) ranks No. 350 overall and the No. 9 recruit from Ohio in the 2020 class. He joins Justin Rogers, John Young, Andru Phillips, Beau Allen, Torrance Davis, Jutahn McClain, Earnest Sanders, Izayah Cummings, Jordan Watkins, Joshua Jones and D’Eryk Jackson as members of Kentucky’s 2020 class, which is shaping up to be a top-25 haul if Mark Stoops can hold on to everyone.

Branham also becomes the third recruit from the Buckeye state to pick Kentucky, joining McClain and Davis. According to 247 Sports, Branham becomes Kentucky’s fourth-best recruit in 2020 behind only Rogers, Young and McClain.
