Kentucky continues to rise in the national recruiting rankings.
When the Wildcats officially received signatures from 20 recruits on Early Signing Day, Kentucky’s 2020 class ranked nineteenth in the Rivals national rankings. Since then UK added two four-star defensive backs — Joel Williams and Vito Tisdale — into the mix and Rivals re-ranked their prospects one final time. With just over two weeks until every signing class is complete, Kentucky’s 2020 class ranks No. 15 in America.
The Cats are in good company with traditional powerhouses in the complete Rivals national rankings.
Kentucky also ranks 15th nationally based on average star rating at 3.5 per signee.
Mark Stoops and Vince Marrow are still working to add another piece or two to the class on Feb. 5, the traditional National Signing Day. Whoever joins the group will be a part of the highest-ranked recruiting class in school history.
