When Mark Stoops took the job back in November, Jalen Battle, a UK commit at the time, said, “It’s probably the best thing that ever happened to Kentucky.” But Battle also said he wanted to get to know Stoops a little more before he solidified his commitment to the Wildcats. Today, that commitment is no more.
According to Rivals.com, Jalen Battle has decommitted from Kentucky. The two-star athlete was the lowest rated commitment and only two-star prospect in Kentucky’s class. He’s now looking at Buffalo and Navy, among others.
