How about a second four-star YAHTZEE to close out your Monday evening?

2020 top-100 prospect and consensus four-star defensive end Samuel Anaele has committed to Kentucky.

According to Justin Rowland of Rivals.com, Anaele made the pledge official this evening:

Ranked by Rivals as the No. 5 defensive end in America and No. 96 player overall, Anaele is now Kentucky’s second highest-ranked player in their 2020 class, behind only Justin Rogers. The 6-foot-4, 245-pound defensive end, who decommitted from Miami yesterday, chose Kentucky over offers from Florida, Georgia, Miami, Michigan, and Oregon, among others.

Anaele joins four-star wide receiver Kalil Branham as Kentucky’s commitments today, giving the Wildcats their 13th pledge in the class of 2020. Anaele and Branham join Rogers, John Young, Beau Allen, Jutahn McClain, Earnest Sanders, Torrance Davis, Izayah Cummings, Andru Phillips, Jordan Watkins, Joshua Jones, and D’Eryk Jackson as commitments.

With today’s commitments of Anaele and Branham, Kentucky now moves up to No. 20 overall in the team recruiting rankings on Rivals.com. They are now ahead of schools such as South Carolina, Mississippi State, Louisville, Tennessee, and Auburn.

    IF we put together another 9/10 win season look out. Not only will most of these kids stay on board but we will have so many more WANTING in. Just saw where we stopped recruiting a 4 star from Cincy. Did anyone ever think UK football would be in a position to stop recruiting a 4 star player? WOW.

      But they haven’t actually signed. I don’t like those comments either but let’s not act like it can’t happen.

    Don’t think it’s idiotic to say that given the nature of football recruiting….but holy sheet this fires is up!

    The more of these kids we get, the more the other 4 stars want to play with them. That will keep the ones we’ve already got signed for the most part and may attract others. Talent attracts talent
