Kentucky adds another juco defender


Cory Johnson (Chambersburg, Pa./ASA College), a 6-foot-3, 282-pound defensive tackle, has committed to the Wildcats, according to multiple reports.

Arizona State, Miami (Fla.), North Carolina State, Rutgers, Syracuse, Temple and Tennessee also extended scholarship offers to Johnson.

He's the third juco defender to pick the Wildcats during this cycle, as new head coach Mark Stoops attempts to patch up a unit that allowed 31 points per game (87th nationally) last season.

Kentucky now has 20 total commitments for 2014.
