Kentucky’s class grows from 2 to 5 in 24-hour span


Montrell Custis and Marcus Walker were getting lonely. They have some company now.

For several months, they were the only two guys committed to Kentucky as part of the 2015 class, a bit of a surprising start after the headlines that came with the 2014 class. But that all changed this weekend as three new commitments came aboard in the same day. Three linemen joined the class.

The 2014 Kentucky signing class was impressive–actually one of the most impressive ever at the school for football. This group wants to impress too. Defensive end Levon Livingston is rated a four-star prospect by some entities and is out of Washington D.C. He joined the ranks of the Wildcats’ class, as did offensive linemen Logan Stenberg of Alabama and Larry Wells of Ohio. After signing 11 players out of Ohio with the 2014 class, Wells is the first Ohio commitment for head coach Mark Stoops–who hails from the Buckeye state.

The three pickups led the Wildcats’ class to move up 18 spots in the team rankings. They’re now ranked No. 32 in the country.

“I believe this will be an even better recruiting class than last year,” Stenberg told Saturday Down South after committing. “I like that Coach Stoops and Coach (John) Schlarman are both down-to-earth family guys but are also great coaches and know the game better than anybody I’ve ever met. The coaches said they loved my size and how quick I was on my feet, considering my size. And they loved my grades.”

Editor’s note: Saturday Down South’s references to ratings follow the composite rankings.
