Three-star defensive lineman Isaiah Gibson announced his commitment to Kentucky on Wednesday night, picking the Wildcats over fellow finalists Purdue and Wisconsin.
Gibson — a 6-foot-4, 300-pound prospect from Springfield, Ohio — is the No. 27 defensive tackle in the class of 2019, according to the 247Sports rankings. He’s also the No. 19 overall player from Ohio and UK’s third commitment from that state for next year’s class, joining fellow defensive tackle Cavon Butler and high school teammate Moses Douglass, a defensive back and the Cats’ only four-star commitment for 2019.
UK now has 16 commitments in all for the 2019 class, and they’ll all be eligible to officially sign with the Cats in December.
