Kendall Randolph, a three-star defensive back from talent-laden Lincoln High School in Tallahassee, Fla., gave his verbal commitment to Mark Stoops. In doing so, he picked the Wildcats over programs like Oklahoma, Florida State, Miami, Louisville, South Carolina, Michigan State, Tennessee and UCLA.
Defensive back was a huge priority for the UK staff coming off a 2013 season in which the pass defense was not up to Stoops' standards. The Wildcats recorded only two interceptions on the year, and none of them came from the secondary.
As a result, the Cats' 2014 commitment list now features six defensive backs, including four-star corner Mike Edwards, three-star corner Jared Tucker, four-star safety Darius West, and two-star juco DBs A.J. Stamps and Michael Mathis.
Kentucky currently has the nation's No. 19 recruiting class, according to Scout.
