Seth Joest becomes third WKU pledge

Woodford (Ky.) County offensive lineman committed to the Hilltoppers on Sunday

Western Kentucky head coach Jeff Brohm has landed a pair of offensive line commitments in the three days.

Woodford County offensive lineman Seth Joest committed to WKU on Sunday afternoon, following a pledge by Bowling Green lineman Jordan Meredith on Friday.

"It feels amazing and it feels right," Joest told

Joest, 6-foot-3, 290-pounds, visited WKU on Junior Day in February and continued to build a strong relationship with the Toppers coaching staff.

"I've always loved Western Kentucky and the coaches there," he said. "It felt like the right decision, so I made the call."

Located two hours east of Bowling Green, Joest is excited for the opportunity to play for in-state school and help the WKU program continue to develop.

"It gets me very excited," he said. "I'm kind of a homebody, so being able to play just two hours away from home is very exciting."

While interest will continue to growth during the recruiting process that lasts until National Signing Day in February, Joest is firm with his decision and is shutting down his recruitment.

"I'm going to stay loyal," he said. "The only things that I'll be attending will be Western Kentucky events."

For now, Joest's focus will be with his team and preparing for his future as a Hilltopper.

"It's been my dream since I was a little kid and it's finally come true," he said. "I'm very excited."
