Kentucky Wildcats Commitment Watch

Kentucky has a long list of impressive recruiting visitors coming to Commonwealth Stadium for Saturday night's game against South Carolina. Which could be close to making a commitment to the Wildcats? Learn more here.

Four-star twin brothers Andrew and David Dowell from St. Edwards (Ohio) have been tight-lipped on their recruitment, but the wind has blown toward Kentucky's way for several weeks now. Current commit Alex Stump recruited the twin brothers to UK initially, but with Ohio State offering Alex Stump, his commitment to Big Blue may be shaky. But I've heard the twins will make an announcement this weekend and fully expect the Cats roll double-Yahtzee. I expect Andrew (6-1, 200) and David (6-2, 180) to fall to the defensive secondary if they join the Cats.

Keeping it in the 2015 class, official visitors Javon Provitt, Kengera Daniel and Tavin Richardson have all spoke highly of Kentucky in the past. Let's take in-depth look at these recruits.

JaVon Provitt leader currently is Cincinnati, but a few months ago he told me the only reason he didn't commit to the Cats was he wanted to visit first. It will be interesting to see if he decides to commit or wait. Provitt is a load at the defensive tackle position. The Warren G. Harding stud looks to the part for Stoops defensive line with a massive 6-4, 270-pound frame.

Kengera Daniel hails from the Tar Heel State. The three-star recruit and med school hopeful took an unofficial visit a couple of months ago where he witnessed an eye surgery and open heart surgery. The Millbrook High School defensive end is the Cats' top target at the position, something he likes quite a bit. Daniel has told me it was possible he could commit this weekend, but it's not his set plan. He did reiterate that if he did commit, he would still take visits. Alabama is lurking in second for his services. Daniel can play the Jason Hatcher position with his current size at 6-5, 251 pounds.

Tavin Richardson (pictured above) will visit the Cats play against is home state school. Richardson plays for the Byrnes (S.C.) powerhouse. The 6-4, 206-pound wide receiver is the Cats top target at the Y-receiver position. Some schools have recruited him as a tight end, but the Cats staff like to use him at the Y position in the "Air Raid" offeense. Richardson has visited UK several times. He told me last week it is possible he could commit on the visit. His teammate Jaylan Foster (2016) will be coming with him on the visit. Richardson is considered a three-star recruit on the Scout network.

On to the 2016 class and one recruit who wouldn't shock me if he decided to commit this weekend...

Jordan Griffin is a three-star Jonesboro (Ga.) High School standout who will take another visit to Kentucky this weekend. His teammate Zerrick Cooper was going to be on the visit with him, but Cooper will visit Georgia instead. Griffin is being recruited as cornerback and coach Derrick Ansley and D.J. Eliot both have recruited him. 6-foot, 172-pound cornerback in the past has been spotted wearing UK gear to games. He has hinted to me a commitment could come this weekend.
