After rolling a Yahtzee this morning in the form of 2020 three-star OL Joshua Jones, the Kentucky coaching staff rolled yet another one this evening.
Jordan Watkins, a three-star wide receiver out of Butler Traditional in Louisville, is officially a Wildcat.
The 6-foot-0, 180-pound wideout made his official announcement on Twitter.
“First I would like to thank God for the abilities he has given me!” Watkins said. “I want to give my most appreciation to my parents. Y’all have gave up more than I could ever ask for to make my dream turn into a reality and I will always be grateful for that!
“Next, I would like to give a huge shoutout to any coach who has ever helped me get to where I am now. Whether it’s a baseball, basketball or football coach y’all have helped me become a better athlete and a better man. I would also like to give a shoutout to the Butler High School community for welcoming me with open arms and making me a part of the family.
“Thank you for all the coaches that took the time to build a relationship with me and gave me the opportunity to play for their program during this process. With that being said I am blessed to announce that I am 110% committed to the University of Kentucky. BBN here I come!”

Watkins chose Kentucky over Louisville, Rutgers, and Central Michigan, among others, though the decision was widely expected to come down to the Cats and the Cards.
Rated as the No. 7 prospect in Kentucky in the Rivals state rankings, Watkins is known for his elite agility, lateral quickness, and vertical speed. At The Opening back in May, Watkins ran a laser-timed 4.38 40-yard dash.
Watkins’ addition gives Kentucky nine commitments for the class of 2020: Five-star prospect Justin Rogers, four-star prospects Beau Allen, John Young, Torrance Davis, JuTahn McClain, and Andru Phillips, and three-star prospects Joshua Jones, D’Eryk Jackson, and Jordan Watkins.
