Tomorrow marks the traditional signing day period where Kentucky will look to finish out the 2018 class on a high note. Mark Stoops and his staff already have 20 signees in the class after a great December period. In this post, we’ll take a look at who’s signed, who’s committed and is expected to sign, and who’s not committed and could sign. Let’s get right into it!

*Star rankings in all lists based on 247 composite rankings

December Signees

• Marquan McCall (4-star OG/DT)

• Darian Kinnard (4-star OT)

• Terry “Touchdown” Wilson (3-star QB)

• DeAndre Square (3-star S/OLB)

• Brendan Bates (3-star TE)

• Stanley Garner (3-star CB)

• Quintin Wilson (3-star C)

• Marvin Alexander Jr. (3-star WR)

• Jamari Brown (3-star CB)

• Davoan Hawkins (3-star DE)

• Akeem Hayes (3-star ATH/WR)

• Keaton Upshaw (3-star TE)

• Bryce Oliver (3-star WR)

• Christopher Rodriguez (3-star RB)

• Ashtan Pierre (3-star ATH)

• Dom Williams (3-star CB)

• Kenneth Horsey (3-star OT)

• Jerquavion Mahone (3-star DT)

• Chance Poore (3-star K)

• Max Duffy (3-star P)

Committed and Expected to Sign

• Nick Lewis (3-star OT)

• LiAllen Dailey (3-star WR)

Not Committed and Could Sign

• Chris Oats (4-star LB)

• Leonard Taylor (4-star TE/DE)

• Kavosiey Smoke (3-star RB)

• Amauchechukwu Nnaji-Collins (Not ranked, OLB)

You never know what to expect on signing day as there could very well be a surprise that nobody saw coming. If we can keep the guys committed and land at least two guys from the final list, this class could shape up to be great. The big name everyone is watching for is Chris Oats after he decided to take an unofficial visit to Kentucky instead of an official visit to Ohio State. If Oats signs, he will be one of the highest rated players in the class. Justin Rowland is reporting that Kentucky will sign four players tomorrow including the commits so, if I had to guess, I would assume the two most likely to sign in that final list would be Chris Oats and Kavosiey Smoke. Let’s hope for a great signing day!
