How about a huge YAHTZEE! for the Kentucky football program on this fine Saturday afternoon?
Joshua Jones, a high three-star offensive lineman in the class of 2020 from Phenix City, Alabama has committed to Kentucky, choosing the Wildcats over LSU, Florida State, and Tennessee, among others.
The 6-foot-5, 299-pound prospect made his announcement today on his Twitter page:

After the announcement, Chad Simmons of Rivals.com published an interview with the newest Wildcat, who said he is officially shutting down his recruitment.
“I am shutting my recruitment down,” said Jones. “I am not one of those guys who commits, decommits and all that. I am focused on Central football and academics now. Kentucky is the school for me. I felt comfortable there, my parents felt comfortable there, I loved the people and the vibe around Lexington and my decision has been made.”
For Jones, he made up his mind last week during his official visit to Lexington.
“That visit changed everything for me,” said Jones. “It was amazing up there. It was my first time there and I felt at home. I loved it. My family loved it. I knew a day after I got back from the visit that I was going to Kentucky.”
