Rivals.com released their newest rankings for the football class of 2020, and the Kentucky Wildcats make a massive jump in the team rankings.
Kentucky was previously sitting anywhere from No. 22 to No. 24 in the rankings, but with the newest shake-up, they make the jump all the way to No. 15 in the nation. This is Kentucky’s highest ranked recruiting class ever.

Kentucky’s prized signee, Justin Rogers, kept his five-star ranking and is now the No. 16 player in the class.
The Cats have a total of 22 commits for next season. 12 of those are three-star prospects, nine of them are four-star prospects, and one of them is a five-star prospect.
Kentucky is still in the hunt for Michael Drennen, an All-Purpose Back out of Ohio who is a four-star prospect. It is seen to be down to Kentucky and USC for Drennen’s services, with Kentucky holding the slight edge according to the Rivals Futurecast.
If the Cats can land Drennen and lock up another four-star, expect them to make a run towards a top-ten class for the first time in school history.
