As first reported earlier in the day by Kentucky Sports Report and now confirmed by Jeff Drummond, Kentucky has gotten a commitment from St. Matthews (SC) Calhoun County HS DE Donte Rumph a 3 star kid with offers from Clemson and Tennessee among others. Big, big pickup. In other news from Scout.com, Cincinnati (OH) Harmony Prep DT D.J. Stafford was upgraded to a 4-star.
SKINNY: Big news for the future of the defensive line for UK. From all indications, this is just a start for the Wildcats. Kentucky leads for Willie Bohannon out of Alabama and Tyler Wyndham out of South Carolina, as well. After having redshirted the majority of its class from a year ago, the future looks bright to say the least. Now the key is getting D.J. Stafford eligible, and continuing to develop his redshirt freshmen. If the Wildcats could somehow convince DT Brandon Newman to take a closer look at Kentucky, the future of the defensive line would be set.
