Marquez Bembry commits to Kentucky Wildcats

Finally, some good news.

NCAA Football: Eastern Michigan at Kentucky Mark Zerof-USA TODAY Sports

The Kentucky Wildcats have scored a JUCO commit in the Class of 2019.

It comes in the form of Marquez Bembry, who announced his decision on Twitter:

Originally a three-star linebacker/defensive end prospect in the class of 2017, Bembry was committed to play for the Tennessee Volunteers before ending up in the JUCO ranks at Jones County Junior College.

A major knee injury suffered in high school helped lead to him beginning his career in JUCO, but now he hopes to get back into the SEC when it’s all said and done.

At 6-3 and 225 pounds, Bembry currently holds an offer from the Louisiana Ragin Cajuns, Ole Miss Rebels and Colorado Buffaloes, but we should probably expect more offers to come as he inches closer to the JUCO national signing day.

This comes after a stretch of UK decommitments and other targets picking different schools, so this is exactly what Mark Stoops and his program needed.
