Kentucky Sports Radio

University of Kentucky Basketball, Football, and Recruiting news brought to you in the most ridiculous manner possible.




As first reported by Drew Barker and later confirmed by Denzel Ware via “#YAHTZEE!” tweets, four star defensive tackle Cory Johnson is rumored to have committed to Kentucky today. The 6’3″, 295 pounder out of ASA Junior College also held offers from Miami, Arizona State, Tennessee, and Penn State; he originally committed to Temple before deciding upon the junior college route.


Ranked the #4 JUCO DT by 247Sports, Johnson will help Kentucky flesh out its depth at defensive tackle after Donte Rumph, Mister Cobble, and Tristian Johnson depart and build a strong foundation for the future defensive line- one that could be one of the country’s elite. His commitment should place Kentucky back into third nationally in recruiting (past Florida State and Texas, and behind Tennessee and Miami).


Look at that grin. Johnson seems ready to come on down.


Update- it’s official. Johnson has committed to the Cats.

    When we first vaulted up the recruiting rankings many weeks ago I enjoyed the exposure, but realized at the time that we would probably finish with an astounding top 25 class and one of the best in school history. NOW I feel confident we will have a top 15 class with potential for much more…#STOOPS

    #8–slow down. It looks to be a great recruiting year for UK, but FL, Georgia, and others do this top recruiting every year.

    Awesome. What a great pick-up. Welcome aboard, Mr. Johnson. And we beat out Penn State, Miami and Tennessee… never thought I’d see the day we are getting such high quality players with top-notch BCS offers.

    You want a shot at immediate playing time in the premier college conference? Come to UK.
