Kentucky picks up commitment from 4-star 2020 OL out of Detroit
The Kentucky Wildcats are off to a decent start in the 2020 recruiting cycle, and made another big addition on Monday.
This one comes to them from Detroit, in the form of 4-star OT Deondre Buford.
As you can see below, Justin Rowland of Rivals reported Buford’s decision via Twitter, saying the talented lineman picked Kentucky over Mizzou, Pitt, Penn State and others:
