The Kentucky Wildcats have landed yet another pledge.

Throughout this week, UK has scored commitments from three-star lineman Jake Pope, three-star corner Jalen Geiger and three-star quarterback Nick Scalzo.

On Friday, UK landed a pledge from Shawnkel Knight-Goff, according to Justin Rowland.

A 6-1, 210-pound defensive end from Louisville, Knight-Goff plays high school football at Doss Magnet Career Academy. 247 Sports Composite has him ranked 588th nationally and 43rd among weakside defensive ends. He also plays running back in high school.

Knight-Goff holds offers from Purdue, Louisville, Cincinnati and Indiana among others.

UK recruiting coordinator actually broke the news, tweeting “Yahtzee” right before the announcement.
