YAHTZEE! JUCO Transfer Tate Leavitt commits to Cats

(h/t Scout.com)

Kentucky has another 2016 offensive line commit. Today on twitter JUCO transfer Tate Leavitt committed to the Cats today, picking Kentucky over schools like Alabama, Auburn and Oklahoma.

The Thornville, Ohio native comes in at 6-6 ft and 298 pounds. Ranked between a 3- and 4-star player, Leavitt comes in as #17 on the JUCO transfer list. He will join Drake Jackson, Landon Young and  George Asafo-Adjei next year. I think our offensive line is set for a while. 

 

Drake seems to think so at least:

    New season ticket holder here and am really excited about what Stoops has brought to UK, getting kids like this away from the Bamas, Ohio State and other big boys is awesome. Hopefully he and the staff can coach these young men and get the most out of their talent level, I think they can and will.

    This is a big Yahtzee right here boys. Really like this commit, especially since Freddie mentioned the nastiness that he plays with!! Looks like offensive line will be a strength in the near future. May have to keep fighting off others for his services. Stoops and Marrow are killin it and they seem to have a good ability to build solid relationships with the kids. So I think they are well equipped to fight off other schools. GO CATS!

    This is huge. This is how you win football games and this could turn into one of the best lines in the conference and by default the country.

      Just let it go. You’ll never understand it and even if you do you really won’t care.
