Four-star WR from Ohio commits to Kentucky

Ohio wide receiver Thaddeus Snodgrass committed to the University of Kentucky on Friday.


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 and 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.
