As reported by Justin Rowland of and our very own Jack Pilgrim, class of 2020 4-star defensive lineman Octavious Oxendine made an unofficial visit with Kentucky on Sunday.

The Radcliff, Kentucky native is ranked as the third best prospect in the state by Rivals and the 17th best defensive tackle in his class. Oxendine spent his junior year at North Hardin High School where his play on the field earned him SEC scholarships from Kentucky, Ole Miss, and Tennessee.

Rivals currently gives the Volunteers a 100% chance of landing Oxendine while Oklahoma and Purdue are in the mix as well. But today’s news is certainly encouraging as the very talented 6’3, 296 pound athlete is certainly considering the Wildcats.

Considering that this news comes on the same weekend that Kentucky lands two highly regarded running backs, its safe to say that the Wildcats are on a warpath right now on the recruiting trail. Landing Oxendine would possibly pair him with recently committed 5-star DT Justin Rogers which would create quite the duo at that position.

Continue to follow KSR as we will report any further news on Oxendine’s recruitment.

    I honestly don’t think we get him we have a five star in Rogers and 4 star in goods already committed at the DT position although Rogers will probably be a nose

    Top D line recruits want to where they are surrounded by talent, so they won’t be forced to play 50 snaps and they are less likely to be double teamed. Fresh rushers get sacks!
