One of Kentucky's most impressive commitments for the 2010 class came after a big weekend of official visits. South Carolina defensive lineman Brice Laughlin decided to become a Wildcat.

Laughlin, 6-foot-2, 270-pounds, has the body build and speed to play not only on inside at tackle, but also on the edge at defensive end. "I'm thinking they are going to try me out at defensive end," said Laughlin. "But we'll see. I don't really think it will matter. I can play both," he finished.

Brice had a chance to visit Kentucky during consecutive weekends. He took an unofficial visit to Kentucky for the Tennessee game and then returned the following weekend for his official visit for the North Carolina game. "I really enjoyed it," he said. "The unofficial visit and the official visit. I came up for the Tennessee game and then this past weekend for the basketball game. I got a lot of time one-on-one with the coaches and players," he said. "I hung out with them an got to spend time with them."

"I also like the strength coach and I got to see the freshman dorms," he continued. "The tutoring program, I like how they go about that. I like the way they set up scheduling for the players," he finished.

While Laughlin could be an impact player for the Wildcats next year, he knows there are areas that he needs to work on. "I want to get faster. I want to get bigger and stronger and develop my technique," he said. "I'm good at pressuring the quarterback. I think I'm a pretty good player that can benefit the team," he finished.

Brice Laughlin is a three-star prospect according to Scout.com. He's rated the 87th best defensive tackle in the nation.
