How about a Yahtzee to close out your Saturday evening?
2020 four-star running back JuTahn McClain announced this evening that he would be committing to the University of Kentucky.
“First off I would like to thank God for blessing me with the talent and opportunity to wake up everyday and play this game of football,” he wrote on his Twitter page. “I would also like to thank the Fairfield High School football coaching staff for believing in me and giving me a shot to lead the team and to build life-long relationships with them! I am truly blessed to have you all in my life. I also want to thank my teammates for pushing me to be the best version of me on and off the field! My family is the reason why I go so hard on and off the field as well! The support system that surrounds me is better than any I could ever imagine! And to my Mom, the sacrifices, long nights, and tears are the reasons I go so hard for our family! I love you! I would like to give a HUGE thank you to all of the schools that have recruited me so far.. But from this day forward I am a KENTUCKY WILDCAT.”

According to 247Sports, Kentucky’s newest four-star commitment is considered the No. 309 prospect overall and the No. 6 all-purpose back in the nation.
McClain chose the Wildcats over offers from Michigan, Ohio State, and Penn State, among several others.
With the commitment, Kentucky now has seven commitments in the class of 2020, with four of them being rated as a four-star by at least one ranking system and one being rated as a five-star. According to 247Sports, that’s good enough for the No. 28 recruiting class in America overall and the No. 17 class in terms of star rating only.
McClain joins three-star running back Torrance Davis, who announced his commitment to Kentucky last night, in the backfield. McClain and Davis are widely seen as two of the most dominant tailbacks in the state of Ohio.
