Cats land running back

Kentucky received a commitment from one of their top running back prospects on Christmas Eve.

Kentucky received a commitment from one of their top running back prospects on Christmas Eve.

Josh Clemons has decided to cast his lot with the Kentucky Wildcats, giving coach Joker Phillips an early Christmas present. Clemons, a 5-foot-10, 208-pound running back, held offers from Mississippi State, Maryland, Cincinnati, Wake Forest and Northwestern before deciding on Kentucky.

Clemons visited Kentucky last weekend and felt good about his UK visit.

"I have taken two visits so far. I went to Maryland and Kentucky," said Josh to Scout.com's Steve Roberson earlier this week. "I really liked Kentucky. I liked how the coaches acted and how they treat the players there.

"You can tell they really want to turn that program around."

KSR will bring you more on the Clemons commitment as it's made available.
