Indianapolis linebacker Darrin Kirkland Jr. tweeted Saturday morning that he was on UK’s campus as planned for a weekend recruiting visit.
Kirkland — a 6-foot-2, 220-pound prospect — is considered a four-star player by every major recruiting service. Rivals.com ranks him as the No. 6 inside linebacker and No. 183 overall prospect in the class of 2015.
Earlier this month, Kirkland named a top 10 of Penn State, Kentucky, Michigan, Tennessee, Texas, Ole Miss, Oklahoma, Virginia Tech, Wisconsin and North Carolina.
This is his first visit to UK.
