Louisville OL is SEC Bound

Joker Phillips has landed another one. This time out of Louisville's backyard, as Justin Jeffries confirmed tonight that he has indeed committed to the University of Kentucky.

6-foot-5, 280 pound offensive lineman Justin Jeffries, out of St. Xavier High School in Louisville (Ky.), has decided on the Wildcats, confirming what was rumored to be true Friday evening.

"Yes, I did commit to Kentucky," Jeffries said.

Jeffries made his verbal commitment over the phone last night in a conversation with Joker Phillips. He chose the Wildcats over an offer from Louisville and interest from Michigan, West Virginia, Ohio State and Tennessee. He recently took an unofficial visit to watch the Buckeyes, as well as Louisville.

Jeffries had been reportedly looking to make a decision soon. "My decision will come down to a place that has good coaching, a nice campus and good facilities."

Jeffries confirmed the commitment after St. Xavier defeated Male High School, 28-23 to extend their undefeated record to 9-0.

Will have more from Justin tomorrow afternoon.
