Four-star defensive end has Kentucky in his top 5 college choices

A four-star defensive end is still considering playing college football at Kentucky.

On Saturday, Monkell Goodwine, who is ranked as the 112th best overall player in the class of 2021 according to 247 Sports, announced his top five list of potential college choices and the Wildcats made the cut. Goodwine is tabbed as the nation’s ninth-best strongside defensive end.

Joining the ‘Cats in trying to gain the services of Goodwine are high-profile schools such as Clemson, Alabama, Arizona State, and Texas A&M. Standing at 6-foot-4 and weighing roughly 260 pounds, the product of Maryland is currently considered a Texas A&M lean. Two experts at 247 Sports forecast that Goodwine will choose to play for Jimbo Fisher and the Aggies, with one of them logging a prediction early on Sunday morning.

Goodwine has not set a decision date quite yet, leaving some room for Kentucky to catch up, but taking down the recruiting behemoths of Texas A&M, Clemson, and Alabama is going to be a massive task for the coaching staff. However, with the way the recruiting efforts have been trending for the ‘Cats, it doesn’t feel like it’ll be much longer before they begin to secure commitments from these types of four-star players on a regular basis.

    Chipping away. A couple of more big wins on the field will translate to more wins on the recruiting front.

    I don’t see why he wouldnt want to play here we just missed the cut second choice of a 5 star to Bama so going against Ta&m should not be an issue for us now.
