Christian County (Ky.) wide receiver Keyron Catlett committed to the Hilltoppers on Saturday

WKU has its first commitment for the 2017 class.

Following a strong camp performance on Saturday, Christian County (Ky) wide receiver Keyron Catlett was extended an offer from the Hilltoppers staff and it wasn't long after that he became the first member of the current recruiting class.

"I feel great," he told WKUInsider.com. "Best decision I made."

Catlett was no stranger to the WKU staff.  The in-state prospect had made multiple trips to Bowling Green, most recently for the program's Junior Day in February.  One of the state's top receivers, Catlett shined during the Hilltoppers camp held on Saturday at Houchens-Smith Stadium.

"My camp performance was amazing," he said.

WKU receivers coach Bryan Ellis extended the scholarship offer following his time working for the Hilltoppers staff and it took Catlett "a few hours to decide" to become a Hilltopper.

Last fall he hauled in 62 receptions for 797 yards and seven touchdowns last fall.

"(The coaches) say I'm an exciting player," he said following his prior visit. "I'm physical and I can go up and get the ball. They say it's very rare in my class that a receiver can go up and get it like I can, real smooth with the ball in my hands."
