How about a Yahtzee to get the day going?
It was a busy weekend for the Kentucky Wildcats over at the Joe Craft Football facility, as Mark Stoops and his staff hosted several transfer targets in Lexington over the weekend. With plenty of high-ranked transfers on campus, the Cats have secured a commitment to help bolster the receivers room next season.
BBN, give a big welcome to Texas A&M transfer, Raymond Cottrell. He took to Twitter to announce his commitment Saturday morning.
I didn’t want to make an edit post I wanted to do my own thing thank you to the BBN I thank y’all so much for y’all the support has been real…with that being said I WILL BE COMMITING TO THE UNIVERSITY OF KENTUCKY #BBN GO WILDCATS!!!!!! pic.twitter.com/MiTrv8JCxQ— Raymond Cottrell (@RaymondCottre14) December 9, 2023
Cottrell, a 6-foot-3 and 215-pound wide-out from Milton (FL), chose the Cats after he decided to leave College Station shortly after Jimbo Fisher was fired from the Aggies. He played in just three games this season and was eligible for a redshirt, giving him four years of eligibility remaining. He caught just one pass on the season, which was a 13-yard touchdown.
As a high school recruit, Cottrell was highly sought after, as he held offers from the who’s who of college football before ultimately choosing Texas A&M. Ranked as a 4-star prospect and a top-250 player in the class of 2023, Cottrell brings some more juice to an already talented receivers room. He was actually committed to Georgia before flipping to the Aggies in January.
Now, he will have a chance to be featured alongside rising juniors Barion Brown and Dane Key, as well as second-year players in Anthony Brown-Stephens and Shamar Porter. Not to mention that the Cats are in good standing with several other high-ranking wideout transfers currently available.
With Brock Vandagriff already in the fold, it looks like this transfer class could come together quite quickly. Let’s keep the train rolling.
Welcome to the BBN, Raymond!
