One of UK’s top football commitments for the Class of 2014 will undergo surgery for a broken leg Friday.
Four-star defensive back Darius West posted a picture to his Instagram account Wednesday night that included a note saying he had re-injured the same leg that he broke in June. In the message, West vowed to “be back at it in a few months,” and there was a UK hat in the background of the picture.
West is one of five UK commitments in the final Rivals 250 rankings, coming in as the No. 219 overall prospect in the Class of 2014. He and quarterback Drew Barker are the only two recruits in UK’s 25-man class who earned a four-star ranking from every major recruiting service.
National signing day is Feb. 5.
