One of Kentucky’s biggest football recruiting targets is keeping the Wildcats squarely in the mix.
Darius Fullwood announced Monday that UK is one of his top five schools, along with Virginia Tech, Georgia Tech, Ohio State and Miami. All five schools have extended scholarship offers.
Rivals.com ranks Fullwood as a four-star prospect and the No. 20 strong-side defensive end in the class of 2015. The Olney, Md., standout was high school teammates with Kobie Walker, who signed with UK for the class of 2014 and has been trying to recruit other Washington, D.C.-area players on the Cats’ behalf.
Fullwood was one of several UK targets who visited for last month’s Blue-White Spring Game.
