Kentucky football coach Mark Stoops landed another big commitment from his home state of Ohio on Friday.
Highly touted wide receiver Thaddeus Snodgrass has announced that he will be a Wildcat.
Snodgrass is considered a four-star recruit by both Rivals.com and Scout.com. Rivals ranks him as the 24th-best receiver in the class of 2014, while Scout has him at No. 30.
The 6-foot-1 prospect had scholarship offers from Ohio State, Notre Dame, Nebraska, Penn State, Louisville and several other major Division I programs.
A native of Springfield, Ohio, Snodgrass visited UK for its "junior day" event in February and is planning to be on campus for Saturday's much-anticipated Blue-White Spring Game.
Snodgrass joins a fellow Ohioan — three-star linebacker Dorian Hendrix — as Kentucky's second commitment from the class of 2014. Four-star defensive lineman Denzel Ware committed to UK earlier this year but decommitted Tuesday and has said that Florida is now his leader.
