The Kentucky Wildcats may have struggled to beat an FCS team today, but that didn’t stop them from scoring big on the recruiting trail.
Just hours after the Wildcats’ 28-23 win over Chattanooga, they picked up a commitment from 4-star recruit Tyreese Fearbry, who announced the news via Twitter.

Fearbry, who was previously committed to the Penn State Nittany Lions, reopened his recruitment in July, and Kentucky ends up being the biggest benefactor. He plays at Perry Traditional Academy in Pittsburgh and is one of the top recruits from the state of Pennsylvania.
ESPN ranks the 6-foot-5 Fearbry 127th overall and 13th among defensive ends in the Class of 2022, while 247 Sports has him at 196th overall and 12th among edge defenders. Both services have him as a top-five recruit from Pennsylvania.
Among the other schools to offer Fearbry a scholarship include the Auburn Tigers, Tennessee Volunteers, Missouri Tigers, Wisconsin Badgers and Miami Hurricanes among others.
With Kentucky’s pass rush struggling for the second-straight season, getting a guy like Fearbry is massive, as he could very well play extensive snaps as a true freshman in 2022.
Mark Stoops now holds 14 commitments in the 2022 class, but this is just the second from a defensive lineman. Kentucky also just moved to No. 24 overall in the Class of 2022 team rankings via 247 Sports Composite (and kicked Indiana out of it in the process).
Now, check out some highlights of the Wildcats’ newest 4-star commitment in action.
