247Sports national recruiting analyst Steve Wiltfong has logged a Crystal Ball pick in favor of Wisconsin for Waggener defensive back Jairus Brents, the top uncommitted football prospect in the state of Kentucky.
Brents — a 5-foot-10 player from Louisville — has been on UK’s radar for several years, earning a scholarship offer from the Wildcats while he was still in middle school. He was on Wisconsin’s campus Saturday for an unofficial visit.
247Sports ranks Brents as the No. 23 cornerback in the class of 2018 and a top 250 prospect nationally. He has not said much about Kentucky in recent weeks.
