Well I guess the Florida game didnt kill recruiting after all. According to Jim Tirey, today the football Cats picked up a commitment from Demetri Merritt, a LB from Georgia, who has joined the 2009 class. Merritt is a skilled outside linebacker that is 6’3″ and approximately 210 pounds at this time. Most people project him to play inside linebacker at the next level, but he is one of these guys who could be put in a couple of different positions depending on his skills and talent develop in Lexington. He is currently a 2 star prospect, but is part of the Georgia pipeline that UK has drilled so well in recent years. He becomes the 19th commitment so far this year and continues what has been a very strong class for the football Cats.
