Former Kentucky pledge Jordan Watkins commits to Louisville


Former Kentucky commitment Jordan Watkins has officially turned to the dark side.

This morning, the 2020 three-star wide receiver out of Butler High School announced his commitment to Scott Satterfield and the Louisville Cardinals.

“The recruiting process takes a lot of twists and turns, and at times can be very confusing,” he said in his announcement post on Twitter. “You year the opinions and wants of so many people around you. At the end of the day, it’s important to trust your instincts and make a decision based on what you know is best for you.”

“With that being said, I KNOW the best place for me is to STAY HOME and wear Cardinal Red!” Watkins continued. “I am officially fulfilling a childhood dream and COMMITTING to the UNIVERSITY OF LOUISVILLE!”

Here was the official announcement:

After originally committing to Kentucky back on June 22, the 6-foot-0 three-star athlete out of Louisville backed off his pledge on October 10.

Watkins is considered the No. 1157 prospect in the nation and No. 13 player in Kentucky in the 2020 247Sports player rankings.

Come on down, Michael Drennen.

    I’m as big a uk fan as there is but if I’m a wide receiver im not coming here .

    1. ukjaybrat

      what about our playing a 4th string quarterback this year has ANY affect on how a wide receiver will be used in the future ?

      That being said, it’s hard to argue a kid going to his dream school. he grew up a ul fan. only committed to UK because ul sucked so hard last year. now there is a glimmer of hope at the end of the tunnel.

    2. TPACAT

      Sooo… UofL struggles while UK’s doing well and he commits to UK. Then UK struggles while UofL’s doing well so he decommits from UK and goes to UofL. Sounds to me like a punk you can’t trust to keep his word and who jumps ship when times get hard…

    3. maximumscott

      He is the 1200 rated recruit… we’ll be alright…

    4. neat1ky

      Your not very big fan if u can’t figure why receivers aren’t getting a lot of touches. Like others noticed we r down to 3rd or 4th depending on who u talk to. We have used receivers many times in the past. We are doing all we can do to keep it afloat. Stoops is doing a great job.

    5. IndianaSucks

      Stoops is doing a good job…for what we have. We haven’t had a decent qb in a long time. People acting like this is the first year we’ve struggled in the passing game. Smh

    6. ukisdabest

      Your saying that terry Wilson, the one who lead us to the 10 win season, isn’t even decent?

    7. IndianaSucks

      Snell and Allen let that team. Wilson would be flat out terrible if he couldn’t run. He’s got an arm, just very inconsistent with accuracy.

    8. yoshukai

      Neat1 – Stoops has been here 7 years. Our best year we had the 108th rated passing offense in the country, out of 130 teams . Running backs should love us though .

  3. TomKat9698

    Good bye!!! Won’t be hard to replace him. Well good luck to him anyway.

    1. Cletis75

      He’s a heck of an athlete. Looks similar to Lynn on film, maybe not so shifty.

    2. Alex90

      Stop it.

    3. shepdog3720

      Dude, please stay off the pipe. This kid is decent, but that’s it.

    4. mashburnfan1

      Staff knew this and is why they had so many WR’s in the class.

  4. gacat123

    Good luck to the young man.

  5. cats646

    Have fun losing to us for four years. L’s down!!!!

    1. 502ownsLexghanistan

      HAHAHAHA. Doubt it.

    2. cats646

      56-10! Repeat this year??????

  6. VMI1957

    Since UK doesn’t use strippers to recruit players he went to a school that did…..

    1. IndianaSucks

      I mean who doesn’t like strippers?

  7. bigblue98

    He’s a receiver from Kentucky. When we start losing linemen I’ll be concerned. A four star receiver from state of Kentucky is equivalent to a three star in Ohio.

    1. Thetruthshallsetbennyfree

      And a 3 star reciever may not even be ranked in FL, OH, GA, TX, or CA.

    2. fan20233

      He’s from Ohio… Columbus Exactly.

  8. livingood4UK

    I like the shout to Drennen there on the end. The way our offense has morphed into what it is today I say we have an even better shot at landing him!

  9. 1stkatman


  10. Headhurts

    Just hold on to the Cummings kid out of Male, he’s the real deal.

  11. Cousins Fake Tooth

    Hope he never sniffs the field and rides the bench for 4 years.

    1. bruh

      come on now we shouldn’t wish that onto anyone

  12. Skywalker

    Don’t look now but here comes little brother stealing a top 1200 recruit from us, maybe he turns out to be something one day but in the grand scheme this is a small ripple in a big pond

  13. JASUN74

    How about the people calling this kid a punk and acting like he sucks just wish him well! We were proud to have him committed here and it just wasn’t meant to be. He grew up a Louisville fan and has lived there all his life. This 17 year old kid is someone’s son and grandson!! My goodness guys!! Good luck young man, except when you play Kentucky of course.

    As far as Kentucky is concerned, This Coaching staff has us in on some big time talent at his position rite now!! We’re talking big time talent that can go anywhere in the country and they’re loving Kentucky. Like some others have said, “We’ll be fine”!!, Actually better than fine! To the few people who are acting like a bunch of little idiot kids, grow the hell up boys! It’s no wonder other fan bases think we are awful!!

    1. RealCatsFan

      Very well said, Jasun. It’s easy to pick out the adults in these forums.

  14. BBN1982

    He ain’t that good. Kentucky isn’t for everyone. He’s being recruited over and he knows he’ll never play.

  15. bbn606

    Louisville’s coach put that dumpster fire out fast and I say Louisville’s Coach because I don’t even know his name. Shows how much attention I pay to Louisville.

  16. Thetruthshallsetbennyfree

    502 owns Lexington in drugs, inbreds, crime, lack of decent schools, and ugly people something I don’t think I’d brag about but Card fans are their own kinda stupid. Well here’s to this dude having the balls to proud of what the city excels at.

  17. notFromhere

    “Childhood dream” to “wear cardinal red” …. says he was never UK material nor committed to UK in the first place. He was just trollin for offers

    Drennen would be great to see suit up for UK. Hope the staff can bring him in.

    1. GACAT

      There has not been a recruiting update in weeks?? Come on guys “get with it”.

    2. notFromhere

      I hear you GACAT! Been clicking on FB Recruiting for over a month and it’s discouraging to see absolutely nothing of note
