Highly touted defensive end Jason Strowbridge announced his commitment to Kentucky on Saturday afternoon.
Strowbridge — a 6-foot-4, 245-pound prospect from Deerfield Beach, Fla. — is considered a four-star prospect by both ESPN and Scout.com. ESPN ranks him as the No. 25 defensive end in the class of 2015.
He is UK’s 15th commitment for next year and the Cats’ seventh pledge with a four-star rating from at least one of the major recruiting services.
Earlier Saturday, Strowbridge announced that his top six schools were UK, Louisville, Miami, North Carolina, N.C. State and Tennessee. He was widely expected to choose the Hurricanes, and he said he still plans to take all five of his official visits.
