UK got some very positive recruiting news today when Marcelys Jones officially decided to transfer from Ohio State. Jones just completed his Freshman year there and after being a High School All American, decided his time in Buckeye land should come to a close. As part of the transfer, he has been given permission to talk to Kentucky and will likely take a visit to Lexington this weekend. I am told by a source that if all goes well, that it is likely Jones will join the Wildcats after the visit and could be a major get here in June for the program. You may remember that Kentucky nearly stole Jones from Ohio State before he became a Buckeye, but the payoff for that recruiting may come slightly later than we had previously thought.
For Kentucky this would be a major pull…this is a High School All-American level Offensive Line talent. He was recruited by all the major schools and decided to stay home and play in Ohio. If the Cats are able to finish this off and make the transfer occur to Lexington, it would be as big of a commitment as Kentucky has had in the 2015 class (even though he is technically from 2014) and major good news here in the dog days of June.
