JeVontey Smith became Kentucky's first wide receiver commitment for the 2013 class. The Alabama prospect picked Kentucky over an offer from Middle Tennessee State.

Greensboro High (Al.) receiver Jevontey Smith earned a scholarship offer from Kentucky recently after running a 4.46 40 at one of UK's camps. The 6-foot-2, 190-pound senior to be had been rated by FOX Sports Next as one of the top athletes in the state of Alabama this year.

With Smith's size and speed, he's expected to be a deep threat on the field, but also strong enough to run the tough routes over the middle.

Smith had an offer from MTSU and had been getting interest from Tennessee, Auburn and UAB.
