Nik Scalzo commits to Kentucky Wildcats Football

UK lands its QB for 2019.


The Kentucky Wildcats have scored their first quarterback commitment in 2019.

It comes in the form of Nik Scalzo, who announced his pledge to UK.

Scalzo, who hails from Cardinal Gibbens in Florida, is rated as a three-star prospect by 247 Sports and the 16th-best dual-threat quarterback. He holds offers from UNL, Tulane, Illinois, Harvard, Buffalo and Akron among others.

Offensive coordinator Eddie Gran was the lead recruiter from Scalzo, though assistant coach Darrin Hinshaw also played a big role.

“Coach (Eddie) Gran and Coach (Darrin) Hinshaw have recruited me extremely hard these past few weeks and I feel like it was the best fit for me,” Scalzo told 247 Sports. “The facility is top notch. It felt like home. The staff is incredible and they treat me like family!”
