Linebacker Romello Height Picks Miami over Kentucky


Kentucky had two chances to receive commitments on the first day of July. Only one of the two picked UK.

Ninety minutes after four-star wide receiver Kalil Branham committed to Kentucky, Georgia outside linebacker Romello Height announced on Twitter he has committed to Miami over the Cats, Florida and Georgia Tech.

Ranked as a three-star recruit by Rivals, the 6’5″ pass rusher’s commitment to The U comes at an ideal time for the Canes. Yesterday news broke that Samuel Anaele reopened his recruitment. A Miami native that was committed for over 18 months, UK is now the favorite for the four-star pass rusher.

UK and The U are going back and forth on the recruiting trail. The Canes have the upper hand…for now.

UPDATE (6:50)

The commitment story posted by Rivals’ Chad Simmons ends with this: “Height said his commitment is strong, but that he will continue to ‘enjoy the process’ and take visits to other schools.”

    This is a good sign for Samuel Anaele, to attend and commit to UK. Anaele decommited from The U, this kid doesn’t pick UK. Come on Samuel Anaele, come on down and be a Kentucky Wildcat!

    He is only 1000% commited.
    Not yet high enough for a “guarantee” signing.

    Give me Anaele over height any day. In saying that. I think we land Anaele. Hopefully he pulls the trigger sooner rather than later, but when and if he does, I think, IMO, we come out on top in this duel. Not at all upset about this, we don’t have a full class this season, missing on a couple kids might not be so bad if better prospects take that spot, and if Anaele takes the spot height would have filled, then that’s a positive IMO…
