3-star DT Kobe Smith commits to Kentucky!

The dice are still hot! As expected, three-star defensive tackle Kobe Smith committed to Kentucky tonight via Twitter:

The 6’4″ 295 lbs. Smith decommitted from NC State one day after he camped at Kentucky and is considered the 44th best defensive end in the 2016 class by 247 Sports. He’s now the 21st commitment in the 2016 class, which is looking pretty, pretty, pretty good:

Smith’s commitment pushes Kentucky’s 2016 class to 12th in Rivals’ team rankings. (247 Sports’ rankings have yet to be updated.)

Who’s next?

    Hell yes!! I love commitments from highly touted bigs. This is what makes Stoops the best: we are getting very good commitments from outside of the offensive skill positions.

    I realize that it is a common practice when displaying a list of recruited players to rank them by Composite Numbers, but I want to “protest” that practice as it represents a connotation that those at the bottom of the list are sub-standard compared to those higher on the list…..definitely not a “feel good” representation. Instead, let’s use a ranking driven by current State location, or by position……not a ranking that differentiates by presumed rating of ability. History shows that 3 Stars and @ 2 Stars athletes frequently over perform. It isn’t real to believe a rating of the # 1 recruit of 0.990 means he is 20 times better than the number 20 ranked recruit who may be rated 0.8200……difference of only 0.1700. no way!
