Roll those dice! Four-star wide receiver Blake Bone ended the Yahtzee drought and committed to Kentucky this morning, choosing the Cats over South Carolina, Ole Miss and Louisville.
Let’s get to know Drew Barker’s newest target:
Chose Kentucky over: South Carolina, Ole Miss, Louisville
Why We Wanted Him
Bone is Kentucky’s eighth four-star commitment in the 2014 class, and the second-highest wide receiver in UK’s class, behind Thaddeus Snodgrass. Bone’s strength is his size. At 6’5″, he is the big target that UK and Drew Barker so desperately need, and has the motor and agility to maximize his frame. Bone won’t be the fastest wide receiver on the roster, but he has very quick feet for his size and gets into his routes very quickly. He’s extremely athletic and elusive in the open field, and has the size to go against any of the SEC’s big DBs.
Plus, his name is awesome.
Why He Wanted Us
Bone choosing Kentucky over his home state school of South Carolina is HUGE. Like Steve-Spurrier-tossing-his-visor huge. After Drew Barker, Bone’s the second recruit Stoops has stolen from the Ole Ball Coach, and his commitment plants a Big Blue stake in the Palmetto State. Bone visited Kentucky during the Saturday Night Prime Time camp earlier this summer, and Drew Barker said he really bonded with the 2014 class.

Drew Barker on Blake
You guys probably remember how I teased that there was a “Yahtzee” brewing on Twitter a few weeks ago. It’s still in the making, I promise. My man Blake Bone tweeted yesterday that he was making his decision in a couple of weeks, and I feel pretty good about our chances. I’m not 100% sure he’ll commit, but I think he’d be a great fit in the Air Raid offense. We need big outside receivers, and he’s 6’5″, can run and has great hands. He’s a really cool guy too, I got to hang out with him in person earlier this summer when he and a bunch of the commits came down for the Saturday Night Prime Time Camp. He’s kind of got a bond with all the guys already, and hopefully he makes a good decision and comes on board to the Big Blue Nation.
Welcome to the fam, Blake.
