The decision has been made! Jaleel Hytchye, a 4-star CB from Cincinnati LaSalle High School has verbally committed to the Kentucky Wildcats. Mark Stoops and his staff with a great recruiting haul early in their Kentucky tenure. He picked the Wildcats over Tennessee, Penn State and Pittsburgh.
“This whole process has been great. I’ve got so many of my friends here tonight. I just appreciate everyone being here. Between those last 5 teams it was real tough. But I think I made the right decision.”
Jaleel Hytchye then announced “For the next four years, or however long. I will be attending the University of Kentucky.” He then put on a Kentucky hat.
Hytchye mentioned Stoops’ coaching history (including his time at Miami) as being a factor. He says he has always wanted to play for a strong defense. Stoops had dinner recently with Hytchye and Stoops told him that he would be his first high school commit. Hytchye also said playing in the SEC was a big draw for him. He called it “the best conference in the country.”
Hytchye dropped a great line as well… “I think a lot of people will be hearing a lot of good things about Kentucky in the future. Look out for it…”
