Kentucky is a finalist for the 4-star Wade twins

They would be a massive get for Kentucky.


Mark Stoops and his staff have been on a roll in recruiting as they picked up a massive commitment from 4-star offensive lineman Grant Bingham on Thursday.

That momentum carried into Friday, as they are now finalists for a pair of twins from Tennessee. 4-star linebacker Keaten Wade and 4-star athlete Destin Wade took to Twitter to announce their final four.

Keaton Wade is a consensus top-200 player overall, and Destin Wade is ranked as the No. 23 overall athlete in America, according to Rivals.

Even though their top 10 lists were slightly different, their top four is the exact same and includes the Tennessee Volunteers, Louisville Cardinals, Virginia Cavaliers and Kentucky Wildcats.

Despite four schools being listed, many believe that this is a battle between Kentucky and Tennessee. However, Keaton did not have Tennessee on his initial top 10 list, which could be a sign that Kentucky may have the upper hand as of now.

Saying this, 247 Sports recruiting expert Steve Wiltfong just logged predictions in favor of Tennessee for the twins. At Rivals, recruiting expert Mike Farrell predicted the twins to pick Kentucky.

What could be better than securing commitments from 4-star twins and beating your rival in doing so? As of now, Kentucky is in position to make it happen, but it looks like it will be a close battle ‘til the very end.
