Kentucky’s recruit is moving his decision past late August.

It appears one of Kentucky Football’s recruits is pushing back the announcement of his commitment. Jager Burton, a four-star offensive guard and Lexington native, took to Twitter on Sunday afternoon saying he will push his commitment to a program back from August 24th.

Of course, this can’t be all that surprising since COVID-19 is a significant pillar holding Burton back from visiting with schools of interest

The nation’s third-ranked offensive guard has a list of Alabama, Clemson, Ohio State, Oregon, Penn State, Texas and of course Kentucky. The local connection combined with Burton’s elite skill would make landing the top-talent a massive success for the Kentucky football program.

COVID-19 could actually provide an advantage for Kentucky, considering traveling is ill-advised for the foreseeable future and Burton will most likely be more comfortable in his hometown playing for the school he grew up around.

Burton did not release a new announcement date, but instead just said he’ll be pushing it back past August 24th. Stay tuned for more details.
