The dice just keep on rolling! After picking up two commits on Saturday, Kentucky football has now added 2020 three-star recruit, Earnest Sanders.

The wide receiver out of Mount Morris, Michigan chose the Wildcats over schools such as Penn State, Michigan State, West Virginia, among others, according to 24/7 Sports.

Sanders made his announcement Sunday afternoon on Twitter.

“First and foremost, I want to thank God for blessing me with my gifted talent and ability. Next, I want to thank my Mom, Dad and Grandmother. They have been with me every step of the way. I know my Grandfather is looking down at me and is so proud of how far I’ve come. My little brothers and sisters are my reason why. My dad in particular has pushed me to become the best player and person I can be. My family always taught me right from wrong. Now, I want to be an example for all the young kids growing up in Flint that look up to me.”

“I also want to thank Coach Hawkins and Coach Mike for always pushing me to be the best. I also want to thank all the teachers and staff at Beecher High School for helping me become a better student.”

“Finally, I want to thank all the coaches and schools that recruited me throughout the process. It’s a blessing to have so many options. With that being said I will be committing to the University of Kentucky. I believe that Kentucky will maximize my potential as a player, student and person over the next 3-4 years. I love all the players, coaches and staff here and can now call them family. I will continue to work hard every day and can’t wait to come to my new home #BBN.”

Sanders is the 73rd ranked wide receiver in the country, according to 24/7 Sports.

Can we go ahead and lock in another one?

      Yeah, KSR listed those offers a bit oddly. Although, I don’t sweat those lists too much with this staff. They seem to know how to get what they need. But it is nice to see some biggies on there.

    Ernest Sanders is a different kind of athlete than the kids he’s playing against.

    Is a 2-star recruit also a “YAHTZEE”?
