Wildcats Reel in two more Prospects

It appears Kentucky is building a new pipeline into Georgia. Already having quite the stronghold on La Grange, now the Wildcats are making in-roads in Stone Mountain's Stephenson High.

Linebacker Jabari Johnson and tight end Ronnie Shields have both given their verbal pledges to play for Kentucky, KSR was told by Stephenson assistant coach Corey Johnson this morning.

"With Jabari, you have a nice fluid linebacker. I have three division one linebackers on this team and I think he'll do well at Kentucky," said Johnson. "Ronnie is a fast tight end. He's 6-foot-5, 220 - pounds. He can catch and block well," said Johnson. "He needs to bulk up for the college level," continued Johnson. "Jabari needs to work on his lower body. He's a gifted athlete, but he needs to work on bulking up and adding strength," continued the coach.

"Schools are recruiting Jabari at defensive end or linebacker. He's 6-foot-3, 230 pounds," Johnson said. The schools who were interested in Johnson were Kentucky, Mississippi State, Alabama, Louisville and UAB," Johnson said.

"Ronnie was being recruited by Florida Atlantic, Marshall, Louisville and Kentucky," said Johnson.

Both prospects will be visiting Lexington for official visits next weekend for the Eastern Kentucky game. It's possible that fellow Kentucky commit Raymond Sanders will make the visit. The Wildcats will also get a visit from their other teammate, cornerback Chris Sharpe.

"The relationship between coach (Randy) Sanders and Sharpe is pretty new. They just started talking recently," said Johnson.
