Jon Sumrall has given the Big Blue Nation an Early Signing Day surprise.
Four-star defensive lineman Josaih Hayes has signed with the University of Kentucky. The top 15 defensive tackle is ranked by Rivals as the No. 160 player in America.
Kentucky’s inside linebackers coach pulled quite a coup to get Hayes in Big Blue. The Horn Lake, Ms. native was a one-time Ole Miss commit. He officially visited Oxford and met Lane Kiffin last weekend. Even though they got the last look from Hayes, the talented prospect chose to leave his home state to play for Mark Stoops’ program. Auburn, Miss. State and Memphis were also finalists.
Kentucky’s defensive line class is absolutely loaded. After winning battles in the trenches on the gridiron, they’ve taken that mentality to the recruiting front on both sides of the line of scrimmage.
