Kentucky Wildcats pick up pair of 2018 verbals from Florida teammates

UK now has three commitments in junior class.

Jarren Williams finally has some company in Kentucky's 2018 football recruiting class.

The Georgia quarterback had spent almost eight months as the lone junior commitment to the Wildcats, but the class picked up some momentum Tuesday morning with the verbals of Florida teammates Davoan Hawkins and Marvin Alexander.

Hawkins (pictured above) and Alexander are three-star players at talent-rich Hollywood (Fla.) Chaminade-Madonna College Prep.

Hawkins is a 6-foot-4, 250-pound defensive end who also held early scholarship offers from programs like Louisville, Wisconsin, North Carolina, N.C. State, West Virginia, South Florida and California.

Alexander, a 6-3, 175-pound receiver, had early offers from Syracuse, East Carolina, Southern Miss and Central Florida. 

They were recruited by UK assistant coach Eddie Gran, who also landed defensive lineman Christopher Whittaker and wide receiver Joshua Ali out of Chaminade-Madonna in this year's recruiting class.
