The commitments continue to roll in for Mark Stoops.
Just two days after quarterback Nik Scalzo committed to Kentucky, the Cats picked up an offensive tackle to protect him. Jake Pope, a 6’7″ 275-pound three-star offensive lineman from Ft. Lauderdale, announced his decision to come to Kentucky on Twitter.
Pope resides just down the road from Scalzo. A right tackle at St. Thomas Aquinas, the private school frequents national rankings and consistently produces Power Five talent.
A top 100 offensive tackle, Pope also held offers from Virginia Tech, Michigan State, UCF, Pitt and N.C. State. Pope is the sixth commitment in Kentucky’s 2019 class, and the 16th player from South Florida to commit to Kentucky over the last two years.
