3-Star JC OL to sign with UK today

Saddleback C.C. offensive lineman Jess Beets won't be following his teammates to Colorado, after all and instead will sign with Kentucky.

Just a few months after verbally committing to Colorado head coach Dan Hawkins after an in-home visit in November, Beets gained word he possibly would be unable to enroll early at school.

Upon hearing the news, the recent graduate of an AA degree from Saddleback CC, decided to take an official visit to Kentucky this past weekend.

The result was apparently a match made in heaven for the 6-foot-3, 300 pound offensive lineman, as he is now expected to sign with Kentucky.

The news was confirmed this morning according to the Rocky Mountain News and Denver Post.

The 6-foot-3, 305 pounder has 2 years to play 2 at the next level. He joins NW Mississippi JC Josh Winchell as junior college signees on the January enrollee list.

The 3-star offensive lineman by Scout.com was first team All-Mission Conference as a freshmen.
