The commits keep coming.
Tuesday afternoon D’Eryk Jackson became the third 2020 recruit to commit to Kentucky in five days, following running backs Torrance Davis and JuTahn McClain. After camping with the Cats, the talented inside linebacker had seen enough. Before leaving Lexington Jackson pledged his allegiance to the Big Blue Nation, choosing UK over Purdue, Ole Miss and Miss. State.
A three-star prospect from Dublin, Georgia, Jackson was recruited by Jon Sumrall. The new assistant’s first commitment is Sumrall’s kind of player. A hard-hitting thumper, Jackson is at his best when he’s busting heads.
Aside from a 7-on-7 camp this weekend, today is the final day of camps at the UK football facility. Even though the action will slightly slow down, there will still be plenty of recruits visiting campus over the next two weeks who could potentially roll the dice. Don’t Geek.

Tonight Lord Stanley’s Cup is in Boston. The Bruins or the Blues will be able to enjoy the greatest trophy in all of sports for the next 365 days. We’ll find out exactly who gets that honor when the two teams take the ice at 8:00 p.m. ET on NBC.
The Women’s World Cup debut by Team USA was quite a spectacle. The Americans completely crushed Thailand. Six goals were scored in the final 16 minutes en route to a 13-0 victory, setting a new World Cup record. The domination was immaculate, but not everybody was happy with the USWNT.

A Sneak Peak into Football Season
The 80-day wait until Kentucky’s season-opener feels like it’s only getting worse. The fine folks around the program are trying to help. Yesterday they revealed the Honorary Captain for the opening kickoff will be Houston Hogg and showed off a brand new mural inside Gate 1 at Kroger Field.
Please, football season, get here soon.
