Montrell Custis made the call today to commit to the University of Kentucky. The 2015 defensive back is a versatile piece of the rebuilding puzzle for Mark Stoops.

Custis is yet another prospect to commit to Kentucky, sight unseen. But Custis knew enough about the Wildcats that he felt comfortable making his commitment.

"I have a great relationship with the coaching staff. I talk with Coach (Mark) Stoops and Coach (Derrick) Ansley," Custis said. "The coaching staff is awesome. I just started talking to Mark Stoops. I think he's a great.

"Coach Ansley has been talking with me since my tenth grade year. I see him as more of a role model or a father figure than just a coach," Custis said.

The Lovejoy High (Ga.) prospect has also formed a relationship with some other future Wildcats.

"I am friends with some of the 2014 class. They were talking to me about committing and I just decided now was the time. I like the rebuilding process that is taking place," Custis said. "I think that I would be a great asset towards rebuilding Kentucky football."

Custis, a 6-foot, 180-pound safety sees himself as a versatile player who can possibly swing over and player corner as well.

"They want me to be versatile. I'm shaped like a corner, but I'm tall like a safety. I can cover anybody on the field," Custis continued.

Custis has offers from schools like Georgia, Auburn, Clemson, Georgia Tech, Tennessee, Mississippi State, West Virginia and North Carolina State, but ultimately picked Kentucky.

"I'm just happy to be a Wildcat," Custis said. "I was considering Tennessee, but Kentucky caught my eye more. Kentucky is a better fit for me. I feel like I could be a great asset to them and bring a winning tradition back to Kentucky," he finished.

The 2015 prospect plans to visit Kentucky for their final regular season game against Tennessee, but will also try to make it for some basketball games.
