Florida Wide Receiver Commits to Kentucky

2017 Hollywood, Fl. wide receiver Joshua Ali has committed to Kentucky.  The 3-star wide receiver was recruited by Eddie Gran, choosing Kentucky over 20 other offers, most notably Louisville, Iowa, Illinois, West Virginia and North Carolina State.

The 6-foot Ali caught 56 passes for 865 yards and 13 touchdowns as a junior, and is ranked as the nation’s No. 70 athlete by the 247 Sports Composite.  The tenth commitment from the Class of 2017 is extremely athletic in the open field.  You can see his talents on display in the highlights below.

The timing of the announcement is impeccable, only eleven days after the Cats lost 2017 wide receiver Russ Yeast.


After it was reported by a few recruiting organizations, Ali made his commitment official on Twitter.

    Hopefully he doesn’t improve during his senior year so he stays loyal to us.

      And this staff has shown me nothing in player development. Pat Towles? Matt Elam? every offensive lineman? hell, every DEFENSIVE lineman

    Stars and rankings means nothing it’s all about player development in college. What was cobb, bud ranked out of high school?

      How many players has Stoops developed? Not many coaches can do less with more, like Stoops has. Just ask Fatt Elam.

    He did develop several NFL players while at Florida State. He knows what he’s doing – we just need to be patient.
