Kentucky has reportedly sealed the deal for one of the most talented defensive backs in America.
After a hectic night at the Joe Craft Football Training Facility, LSU cornerback Kelvin Joseph has enrolled at the University of Kentucky. Justin Rowland reports the cornerback will begin classes in Lexington tomorrow.

A four-star recruit from Baton Rouge, Joseph initially committed to LSU over Alabama and Clemson at the 2018 Army All-American Game. He played in 11 games as a true freshman on special teams and in the secondary, recording 12 tackles and a crucial third down pass deflection in a victory over second-ranked Georgia.
After sitting on the sideline for the 2019 season, Joseph will have three years of eligibility remaining at UK.
Florida was considered the favorite shortly after Joseph entered the transfer portal. Instead of going to Gainesville, Joseph will be the fourth-highest ranked player in the 247 Sports Composite rankings to ever wear Kentucky blue.
