Throughout the year, Lakota East (OH) offensive guard Jarrett LaRubbio had picked up over 20 offers. On Saturday morning while visiting Lexington, the junior made his decision.
"I've committed to Kentucky," said LaRubbio. "I kind of knew I wanted to commit before I went there today. So while I was there, I committed to Coach Stoops while Coach Marrow was in the room. They were really excited. It just feels great knowing I'll be a Wildcat."
There are several things that the junior loves about Kentucky, but the staff is what really stands out to him.
"It really was the coaches. I just felt really comfortable with them, especially since they're from Youngstown. I'm excited to play for them."
LaRubbio will be joined in Lexington by fellow Ohioans Tymere Dubose, Darryl Long, Mikel Horton, Thaddeus Snodgrass and Dorian Hendrix.
"The campus is really nice, they have great fans and it's a great place to play football. It's also a chance to play in the SEC, the best conference. All us kids coming there want to do something new and win."
LaRubbio will be playing Offensive Guard and says that he won't be looking at any other schools.
"This is it for me. I want to try to get recruit other guys to come with me."
Now that the recruitment process is over, the lineman is looking forward to his final high school season.
"I just want to play with my teammates and friends for our last year and hopefully win a state championship."
