Jake Pope commits to Kentucky Wildcats Football

For a second-straight day, UK scores a Yahtzee!


The Kentucky Wildcats have landed another football pledge.

After landing Nik Scalzo on Tuesday, UK scored a commitment from Jake Pope on Wednesday. Pope announced the news on Twitter:

Pope, who hails from Ft. Lauderdale, plays high school football at powerhouse St. Thomas Aquinas. He’s rated as a three-star offensive tackle and the 157th-best prospect from the state of Florida in the 2019 class. He’s also the 104-ranked offensive tackle, though his offer sheet suggests he should be higher.

The 6-7, 275-pound tackle holds offers from the Michigan State Spartans, Virginia Tech Hokies, Cincinnati Bearcats, Pittsburgh Panthers and Syracuse Orange among others.
