Earlier today, ESPN released its Top 300 player rankings for the 2020 class, and two Kentucky commits made the cut. Four-star defensive tackle Justin Rogers came in at No. 113, and four-star defensive end Samuel Anaele is No. 186.
By now, you know all about Rogers, but Anaele is another star on the rise. He’s ranked as high as No. 96 in the country by Rivals, making him one of Kentucky’s highest ranked commits in the Stoops era, alongside Rogers and Landon Young. That’s pretty impressive considering he’s only played football for three years.
Other names to keep an eye on:
- No. 232: Makari Paige – The four-star safety has Kentucky in his top four, along with Michigan, Ohio State, and Penn State
- No. 279: Desmond Tisdol – The four-star inside linebacker has Kentucky in his top five, along with Auburn, Florida, Georgia Tech, and South Carolina.
- No. 283: Vito Tisdale – Kentucky is considered the favorite for the four-star safety from Bowling Green
- No. 290: Caziah Holmes – The four-star athlete has Kentucky in his top seven, along with Florida, Florida State, Penn State, Tennessee, Miami and Auburn.
