YAHTZEE: Florida Wide Receiver Flips Commitment from Louisville to Kentucky

@9GoLive

Three-star Florida wide receiver Akeem Hayes committed to Louisville on April 27.  Today he dropped the Cards to become a Kentucky Wildcat.

Hayes’ timing was impeccable, announcing the decision on Twitter just moments after the Cards lost to Florida in the College World Series.

Hailing from Chaminade-Madonna Prep in Hollywood, Florida, he is now the third player from the South Florida football powerhouse in UK’s 2018 class, joining defensive end Davoan Hawkins and wide receiver Marvin Alexander.

Considered the No. 65 athlete in the nation, Hayes was offered by Kentucky a month after he committed to UofL.  He camped in Lexington after making a stop in Louisville two weeks ago.  Now he’s a Wildcat.

I’d like to think this poll had something do with it.

See what Hayes has to offer Eddie Gran’s offense.

    My man looks like he’s either smuggling something in his pants or he has a bit of a Wenyen Gabriel thing going on
