Ander Bodkin (Marianna, Fla.), an offensive line prospect from north Florida, committed earlier today to the University of Kentucky. The Wildcats were one of several schools in pursuit of the 6-foot-6 and 280-pound Bodkin.
"He told me this morning around 10 a.m.," said Tim Cokely, Marianna's coach. "They were one of sveral schools he visited this spring and summer. I know that he really liked it up there and he likes the coaches a lot."
Bodkin committed to Kentucky over South Florida and others.
"They are getting an athletic offensive lineman that has great size," Cokely said. "He's strong. I mean he just squatted 500-pounds and this kid runs 5.0 [forty] flat."
Kentucky now has 15 commitments for their 2013 recruiting class.
