YAHTZEE! 2019 three-star OLB K.D. McDaniel commits to KENTUCKY

YAHTZEE!

The Wildcats have officially picked up their second pledge of the class of 2019, as three-star linebacker K.D. McDaniel has committed to KENTUCKY!

He just announced his decision on Twitter:

The 6-foot-2, 225-pound outside linebacker chose the Wildcats over South Carolina, UCF, and USF, among others.

Rivals lists the newest Wildcat as the 63rd-best recruit from the state of Georgia in 2019, and he has the numbers to back that up. Just last season, McDaniel managed 104 tackles, 10 sacks for Tift County High School, a top-level program in the state.

Earlier today, McDaniel tweeted that he is “100%” and Kentucky is “where he wants to be,” adding that he will not be decommitting later on in the recruiting process.

In an interview with Justin Rowland of Cats Illustrated, McDaniel said his trip to Lexington this past weekend was the deciding factor in his decision.

“The trip went so great,” McDaniel told Cats Illustrated. “I had built up a relationship with all the defensive coaches to where I have a trust with them. They told me how it was down there and then they showed me and told me how it’s going to be when I get there. I know that I can trust them. It seemed like I can trust them. They’re good coaches.

Watch the newest Wildcat work:

Welcome home, KD!

      Just wanted to post in between 2 UL fans to see how bad the smell was… Yeah, it’s bad. Cross between a bird that’s been dead and musty for days and a lot of regretful decisions…

      YAHTZEE is for the ones that are for UK. Cobb, Trevathan, and anyone else that plays like a 4-5 star regardless of rating, carddog and luesser.

    “YAHTZEE!” should be reserved for 4 and 5 star signers only…

      Benny was a 3 Star. SJ was a 2 Star. Lloyd Tubman was a 4 Star. You tell which ones really deserved a Yahtzee

      You do realize we have said Yahtzee for just about every commitment since Stoops has gotten to Kentucky, right?

      Look at Alabama. They sign 4 & 5-stars all the time. What good has it done them?

      Dixiestick… enough brain with which to paint the head of a pin. Alabama was who they are before the rating system was invented. They are in the mix because of coaching and recruiting, no doubt, but still lose games. Your team should play some teams like that 4-5 times a season.

      Maybe then you’d be able to stop losing to teams that you should beat by >21 points that don’t have all of the “4 and 5 stars.”

      Take it easy on them, they’re really hurting since that 2013 banner and trophy got repossessed.

      Listen I can’t stand dUKe but as a basketball fan there is no way you can compare what K has done to Cal. Coach K is a great coach, one of the best to ever coach the game and hands down way better than Cal. Just like the NFL and all the Brady and Patriot haters, don’t have to like them but if you know football you have to respect what they have done for so long, it is amazing. We would be in that same situation if Pitino had never left, just hopefully he would not have done all the other stuff at UK and I don’t think he would have, he would have been turning away top players by now. If he had stayed at UK and still been here how many titles you think we would have? I would guess 14 or more by now.

      Then don’t pay attention to it prick. This is Kentucky sports radio, last I checked football is a sport. Football also produces more revenue for the school then any other sport. And you want to talk about a joke? Look in the mirror bud

    That is one good looking highlight video. He looks like he has speed off the edge and I LOVE that he doesn’t quit on the play. High motor and high football IQ. Reminds me of Josh Allen.
