4-Star Athlete Tyrell Ajian Commits to Kentucky


Mansfield, Oh. athlete Tyrell Ajian has committed to play for Mark Stoops next season.  A 4-star Top 250 athlete, Ajian picked Kentucky over Michigan State, Michigan, Tennessee, and Notre Dame, among others.  Vince Marrow was the first to break the news.

Ajian was a frequent flyer to Lexington this spring, spending time on the sideline during the first spring scrimmage with Alex King and Javonte Richardson, the Cats’ last two commitments, both from Ohio.

Ajian is the 12th commitment in the class of 2017, the second-highest rated recruit behind Richardson.  247 lists Ajian as the 156th ranked recruit, ESPN as the 82nd ranked player overall. Ajian’s addition moves the Cats’ class to #9 in the nation.  His versatility is on display in his highlight reel.

    Great pickup, hope he sticks. Watched Finebaum today and the difference in being a great program like Bama and those just trying to get to a bowl like KY is the incredible depth Bama can have across the board. There are not a lot of 4 star kids that are going to redshirt or play special teams roles at KY, while at Bama that is a norm, as it is for KY in basketball. UK has some talent now, let’s hope they stay healthy and the staff utilizes it to get some wins, the past three years have been brutal from a fan standpoint.
