I think it’s easy to determine Mark Stoops and his staff’s favorite game.
Today, they got to play a little more Yahtzee, as Kentucky picked up a commitment from Jordan Lovett, a safety from North Hardin in Radcliff, Kentucky. He announced the decision this morning on Kentucky Sports Radio.
The 6-2, 195-pound Lovett is ranked as 3-star safety by both Rivals and 247 Sports in the Class of 2021. He is ranked as the 5th-best player in the state by Rivals.com and the 7th-best player in the state by 247.
Among the other schools who offered Lovett include Louisville, Tennessee, West Virginia, Missouri, Boston College, Purdue, Georgia Tech and Cincinnati among others. This is one that Stoops and co. really wanted and will be glad to have in Lexington.
The North Hardin football program is becoming a pipeline for the Kentucky Football program. This becomes the the third commitment in two years from Radcliff, as the Cats picked up commit from running back La’Vell Wright just last week. Last season, the Cats picked up a commitment from Octavious Oxendine a 4-star defensive lineman.
Lovett had a breakout season his junior year, as he recorded a nation-high 15 interceptions last season. He also helped lead his team to undefeated season until they lost eventual Kentucky’s 6A state champion Trinity.
Jordan becomes the ninth recruit to join the Cats 2021 class, which also includes Wright, wide receiver Chauncey Magwood, quarterback Kaiya Sheron, offensive lineman Paul Rodriguez, offensive lineman David Wohlabaugh, defensive end Kahlil Sanders, wide receiver Armond Scott, and wide receiver Dekel Crowdus.
