ESPN just released its new top 300 rankings for the 2022 class, and three Kentucky Football commits made the cut. Six-foot seven, 300 lbs. offensive tackle Kiyuanta Goodwin moved up a few spots to No. 74, while the four-star Wade twins moved down slightly, Keaten, an outside linebacker, to No. 197 and Destin, an athlete, to No. 284.
When it comes to the players Mark Stoops, Vince Marrow, and staff are still pursuing, offensive tackle Aamil Wagner is No. 119, wide receiver Dane Key of Frederick Douglass is No. 214, and offensive tackle Tegra Tshabola is No. 218. On defense, defensive tackle Mykel Williams, currently committed to USC, is No. 56, and outside linebacker Jaron Willis, a Georgia Tech commit, is No. 148. Owensboro quarterback and Rutgers commit Gavin Wimsatt is still the highest-ranked prospect from Kentucky, moving up from No. 171 to No. 143. Check out the entire list here.
