Luke Hiers of Lake Wales, Fla., is ranked the No. 224 overall prospect by Rivals.com.

Three UK football commitments, one major in-state recruit and several other targets for the class of 2015 highlighted the updated Rivals 250 that was released Tuesday.

Linebacker Eli Brown (No. 133), tight end C.J. Conrad (No. 195) and offensive lineman Luke Hiers (No. 247) all remained in the Rivals 250 following their commitments to Kentucky. All three of those prospects dropped 20-25 spots in the rankings.

Kentucky has earned commitments from 10 Rivals 250 recruits under Coach Mark Stoops, including five in the class of 2014. The Cats had just one such recruit — Glenn Faulkner — in the previous five classes.
