SB Nation recruiting analyst Bud Elliott is predicting that Kentucky will eventually land the commitment of three-star wide receiver Shocky Jacques-Louis, who is currently committed to Tennessee.
Jacques-Louis — a 6-foot-1 prospect from Fort Myers, Fla. — originally committed to UK for the class of 2018 before backing off of that pledge and then picking the Vols. Still, the Wildcats’ coaching staff has continued to recruit him over the summer and fall, and Jacques-Louis took an official visit to Lexington earlier this season. He’s also friends with UK quarterback commitment Jarren Williams.
With Tennessee Coach Butch Jones on the hot seat, Jacques-Louis told SB Nation this week that he’s “definitely looking at other options” in his recruitment. Elliott logged a pro-UK prediction for Jacques-Louis late Tuesday night.
The Cats already have three wide receiver commitments for 2018 — Marvin Alexander, Meechi Harris and Akeem Hayes — but they’re looking for more. 247Sports ranks Jacques-Louis as the No. 79 receiver nationally in the 2018 class.
