If you haven’t heard the big news today, 3-star cornerback Yusuf Corker picked Kentucky over Tennessee, South Carolina, and Michigan State, becoming the 22nd member of Kentucky’s 2017 class, which is now ranked 19th by Rivals. Corker announced his decision in front of friends and family at Bench Warmers Sports Grill in Stockbridge, Georgia. After donning a UK hat, Corker posed with what looks to be a Kentucky football cake:

Tennessee was considered the favorite for Corker, making this a huge coup for Mark Stoops, Steven Clinkscale, and Matt House, Corker’s primary recruiters:
Yusuf Corker is a big miss for the #Vols if he follows through and signs with Kentucky. No coating that one

Butch is losing recruits to (Mark) Stoops now.
