On Kentucky’s final weekend of football recruiting before the start of the Early Signing Period, the Wildcats are hosting two four-star talents on official visits.
One player you know pretty well by now. Bowling Green defensive back Vito Tisdale has been to Lexington many times. This weekend will serve as his official visit.
Ranked by 247 Sports as a top 20 safety and the No. 194 player in America, earlier this week Tisdale received his All-American Game jersey. He plans on announcing his college decision during the game on national television. Tisdale will choose between Georgia, Texas A&M, Alabama and Kentucky, but the consensus is that it’s UK all the way. I would not be shocked if he submitted his paperwork Wednesday and waited to publicly announce until January.

Four-star offensive guard Jeremy Flax will join Tisdale in Lexington.
A 6’6″ 315-pound offensive tackle from Michigan, Flax currently attends Independence C.C., the JUCO that gained fame in Last Chance U. Earlier this week he hosted Eddie Gran for a visit in Kansas. That meeting came shortly after Auburn increased the pressure. Gus Malzahn offered Flax a scholarship Dec. 2, then turned around and hosted him for an official visit four days later. Texas Tech is the other school in the mix for Flax.

Kentucky’s 2020 recruiting class has commitments from three offensive linemen — John Young, Deondre Buford and Joshua Jones. They’re also pursuing four-star offensive guard R.J. Adams. Adding Flax into the mix would stack the line of scrimmage for years to come.
