Wildcat Impact: Darius West

Another of the members of the Kentucky 2014 recruiting class has faxed his letter of intent to the Wildcat coaching staff. Darius West is officially a Wildcat.

Darius West

SCHOOL: Lima (OH) Central Catholic

SIZE: 6-foot, 195-pounds



POSITION RANKING: Number-21 safety

SCOUTING REPORT: Another player who missed his senior season but showed enough over a two year period to catch our attention to the talents he'll take to Kentucky. Physical player who is not afraid to hit, West could see early time on special teams and we would not be surprised if he's on the field fulltime early during his career.

WHY KENTUCKY: "Life has been really enjoyable since I committed to Kentucky," said West. "However, schools like Notre Dame and Michigan State still want me to visit and now USC has started to get a hold of me too. But I'm solid with Kentucky."

Has the new found interest from a program like USC turned his head?

"No I'm not really intrigued by them reaching out," said West.
