We figured once the first domino fell that many would fall after, and that’s certainly coming to fruition. Moments ago, three-star WR Isaiah Epps pledged his commitment to the Kentucky Wildcats on Twitter.

Epps, a 6’3 receiver out of Jenks, Oklahoma, chose the Cats over Illinois, Ball State, and Tulsa, among others.
For a guy his size, Epps has an incredible knack for creating separation from defenders and making impressive plays on the ball. He’s got fantastic speed and hands, especially for a guy that flew under the radar as a senior, making him an excellent find for the Kentucky staff. In his senior year at Jenks High School, a powerhouse in the state of Oklahoma, he managed 59 receptions, 1209 yards, and 12 TDs.
Watch him work:
Epps’ commitment brings Kentucky’s 2017 recruiting class up to 20, their original goal going into the year. With big-name prospects like Thayer Munford and Lynn Bowden still on the table and favoring the Wildcats, this class will almost certainly finish closer to 25 when Signing Day comes.
Come on down, Isaiah.
