Kayaune Ross committed to Kentucky last night via Twitter. But despite his public commitment, Ross confirmed to All Wildcats that it’s really just a pledge.
“I haven’t fully committed to Kentucky,” said Ross. “I just gave my pledge right now to Kentucky, being my leader in this recruitment.”
Ross is hearing from a number of schools as his recruitment winds down. The freshman, who has three years of eligibility on the next level, is looking to be closer to his home in southern Ohio.
“I have offers from multiple schools, but I’m looking to stay closer to home. Honestly I will do anything that is in the best interest for me,” Ross said.
But Ross is very high on the Wildcats’ program and has friends who are on the roster. Those friends have sold him on the program.
“Kentucky has players that I’ve played with in the past. That helps a lot with being comfortable. They tell me it’s great in the Big Blue Nation,” he continued.
Ross has also formed his own opinions on the Wildcats and where the program stands at this time.
“I like that UK is rising as a program and it’s a perfect time for me to help and make a name for myself. SEC ball is great exposure for me,” he continued.
Ross plans to visit Kentucky this weekend where he can get to know more players and staff members.
“I’m looking forward to getting a good feel with all the coaches on the visit and all the players. Basically getting a vision on my future,” he said.
The future vision that any program would have of Ross is a big receiver to make plays down field and also across the middle of the field. But how does Ross see himself as a player?
“I am a team player that will make sacrifices if necessary. I’m very coachable, physically and will make a big play. My size and strength help my game. I have good speed and I’m working on getting faster, stronger and catching balls that are thrown to me,” he finished.
We will likely more know about where Ross stands with Kentucky after his official visit concludes this weekend.
All Wildcats will keep you updated on Kayaune Ross.
