YAHTZEE! North Hardin’s Octavious Oxendine Commits to Kentucky

Kentucky’s Ox will not leave the Commonwealth to play college football.

Octavious Oxendine revealed in a ceremony at North Hardin High School that he will take his talents to the University of Kentucky. A four-star prospect, Rivals ranks Ox as the No. 24 defensive tackle in America.

Recruited by Vince Marrow, Oxendine chose Kentucky over Louisville, Purdue, North Carolina and Tennessee. What will be an historic defensive line class in Lexington will all be at the demise of the Volunteers. Kentucky won head-to-head matchups for Ox, Justin Rogers, Tre’vonn Rybka and Samuel Anaele.

UK now has commitments from four of the top ten players in the state of Kentucky. Vito Tisdale could be the fifth when he announces his decision at the All-American Bowl in January.

Oxendine’s decision could have a significant impact on the field next fall and on the recruiting trail. The powerful defensive lineman has two North Hardin teammates that are at the top of Kentucky’s 2021 recruiting board, defensive back Jordan Lovett and running back Lavell Wright. It’s a good day to be a Kentucky football fan. Just see what Mark Stoops is getting in the trenches next fall.

UPDATE: Here’s the moment Mark Stoops found out Ox was “in the boat.”

    Man, it’s almost embarrassing how many studs we have signed today. Is this real life? Can we start referring to UK as Lineman U?

    Did anyone see RJ Adam’s announcement video. He took off his jacket to show an Alabama shirt then took it off to reveal UK shirt. Awesome.
