YAHTZEE! 2019 tight end Nikolas Ognenovic commits to KENTUCKY!


How about a Yahtzee double-header on your Fourth of July holiday?

2019 three-star tight end Nikolas Ognenovic has committed to Kentucky!

He made the official announcement tonight on Twitter:

Ognenovic, a 6-foot-6, 235-pound tight end out of Fort Lauderdale, FL, committed to Kentucky over Louisville, Ole Miss, Pittsburgh, Purdue, South Florida, and several others.

Kentucky offered the talented pass-catcher back on February 2, and he came to Lexington on an unofficial visit on the 24th. He visited for the Blue-White Scrimmage in April, and then came for an official visit in June. Just a month later, he’s a Cat.

According to 247 Sports, Ognenovic is the No. 784 overall recruit in the class of 2019 and the No. 31 tight end in the nation. He’s a consensus three-star prospect.

He is the second Florida product to commit to UK today, with the other being three-star receiver DeMarcus Harris.

    Why are we still doing the Yahtzee thing

    1. antiquefurnitureandmidgets

      To irritate you.

      It’ll go away eventually. The writers are probably being forced to use it, I don’t know. It was almost a thing for a couple months when there was still buzz around football recruiting years ago and people would get excited, now it means absolutely nothing. It just makes the sensible fan cringe. KSR writers are rarely accused of being creative or intelligent.

    Cool! However, I agree that the Yahtzee thing is kind of played. Wasn’t it DJ Elliot who came up with that? And he’s gone.

      Yahtzee!

      Was Vince. DJ came up with “ it’s complicated, you wouldn’t understand”. Yahtzee !!!

    With all these Yahtzees, are we in the top 10 of the SEC, on 247sports composite rankings yet? We must be with all this hype. Probably top 5, even.

    He’s got the intense stare down pat. Like Lee Van Cleef with more hair and no ‘stache.

    Alright nice pickup for the team. Good size as far as his height alittle taller than Conrad . I’m really liking UK’s size at that position really getting some good size there. We will be losing our best TE this year so hope the ones coming in can pick up were he leaves off.

    He’s got a Vince Papale vibe going on.
