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:

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