Ivey, a six-foot-one kicker/punter, confirmed his intentions Wednesday morning.
A two-sport athlete at Mayfield, Ivey punted for four years and handled the kicking chores during the past two seasons.
Ivey, who also plays basketball, helped Mayfield to the 2002 Class A state championship with a win over Beechwood. He teamed with All-State lineman Micah Jones.
Ivey was an honorable mention All-State selection by the Lexington Herald-Leader in 2003.
