OL Kelly Jr. on board with the Cats
According to multiple reports, offensive tackle Derrick Kelly Jr. (Quincy, Fla./East Gadsden) is the latest 2014 prospect to select Kentucky.
Florida A&M, Middle Tennessee, South Florida and UCF also extended scholarship offers to the 6-foot-5, 268-pound blocker.
Kelly Jr. showed off his athleticism this spring on the Nike circuit, registering an electronically-timed 5.26 40-yard dash, 4.97 20-yard shuttle, 28-inch vertical, 38-foot power throw and 76.41 SPARQ.
The Wildcats have 18 verbals. Over the weekend, news surfaced that wide receiver Tyre Brady (Homestead, Fla./South Dade) had committed to Kentucky, but those reports appear to have been premature.
Kentucky's class is rated 11th by ESPN RecruitingNation.
