Linebacker Romello Height Picks Miami over Kentucky

@height_romello

Kentucky had two chances to receive commitments on the first day of July. Only one of the two picked UK.

Ninety minutes after four-star wide receiver Kalil Branham committed to Kentucky, Georgia outside linebacker Romello Height announced on Twitter he has committed to Miami over the Cats, Florida and Georgia Tech.

Ranked as a three-star recruit by Rivals, the 6’5″ pass rusher’s commitment to The U comes at an ideal time for the Canes. Yesterday news broke that Samuel Anaele reopened his recruitment. A Miami native that was committed for over 18 months, UK is now the favorite for the four-star pass rusher.

UK and The U are going back and forth on the recruiting trail. The Canes have the upper hand…for now.

UPDATE (6:50)

The commitment story posted by Rivals’ Chad Simmons ends with this: “Height said his commitment is strong, but that he will continue to ‘enjoy the process’ and take visits to other schools.”

    This is a good sign for Samuel Anaele, to attend and commit to UK. Anaele decommited from The U, this kid doesn’t pick UK. Come on Samuel Anaele, come on down and be a Kentucky Wildcat!

    He is only 1000% commited.
    Not yet high enough for a “guarantee” signing.

    Give me Anaele over height any day. In saying that. I think we land Anaele. Hopefully he pulls the trigger sooner rather than later, but when and if he does, I think, IMO, we come out on top in this duel. Not at all upset about this, we don’t have a full class this season, missing on a couple kids might not be so bad if better prospects take that spot, and if Anaele takes the spot height would have filled, then that’s a positive IMO…
